This past June the Scenic Philadelphia, the Public Voice for Public Space, recently hosted a group of representatives of the Gyeonggi Province (South Korea) to discuss Scenic Philadelphia’s mission and its impact on shared space. Guests included members of the Gyeonggi government’s New City Development Division, Land Development Planning Division, and several other departments as well as representatives of the advertising industry. The group, which discovered Scenic Philadelphia through its website, was in the process of conducting a national tour of America, stopping in Boston, New York, and Washington, D.C. Their stop in Philadelphia was planned solely to visit the Scenic Philadelphia. The visit represented another step forward in the growing international dialogue about public space and outdoor advertising.
