AN ORGANIC AND INDEPENDANT ARTS ADVOCACY PROGRAM

Shining a light on Philly Art + Creativity

WHAT IS A philly Creative Ambassador?

I travel as a way to gather ideas from other communities about how we can improve the state of Philadelphia arts and art education.

HERE THERE AND EVERYWHERE

Curated STORIES

SEE EACH CITY WITH NEW EYES

My goal is to travel the world and document all the amazing art that can be found outside of the gallery. I love public art because I believe that it truly speaks to the soul of a neighbor hood and block by block weaves a tapestry of and entire city. My galleries are a mix of street art, architecture,  city funded murals, people, dance, laughter, sadness, inspiration and public awareness.

ABOUT

Tony HOWARD

CREATIVE AMBASSADOR AT LARGE

I’m a visual problem-solver, business designer, and creative technologist. I help companies and organizations transform their ideas into influential products and services.

I have years of diverse experience. I started my career as a Flash animator but over the past 20 years, I’ve worked within the realms of online education, commercial advertising, branding design, interactive development, pharmaceutical marketing, STEM program development, graphic novel illustration, and game design.

I understand the power of data and the potential impact of emerging technology in marketing, media, and education. For the past several years I’ve dedicated my time to working with communities to bring technology into the classroom. I co-founded Creative Tech Works™ in North Philadelphia, a STEM program whose mission was to produce socially conscious, diverse tech talent.

 Our partners included Google and The School District of Philadelphia. I wrote the programs’ curriculum and developed several demonstrations and events, including an interactive race through the city, using apps and wearable tech created by the students of the program. I believe humanity has only scratched the surface of how integrated communication technologies, paired with passion and artistic instinct, can transform how we tell stories. I seek to create stories that can connect brands, organizations, and individuals with audiences in increasingly meaningful ways.
