National Symposium Philadelphia Sponsorship Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in supporting the 2022 National Symposium Yo! Modernism: The View from Philadelphia. The symposium will feature talks by local and international authorities on the Modern Movement and a variety of tours to midcentury landmarks throughout the region, exploring why Modernism still has the power to turn heads, and how its many manifestations reflect on local, regional, and broader goals. Each event has opportunities for sponsorship, with each level of sponsorship offering varying levels of acknowledgment for your support.

This year's sponsorship levels are named in honor of notable women architects, designers, artists, and preservationists with links to the city of Philadelphia. They are in chronological order based on birth year.
