PETER ERICKSON

The Fairgrounds, Project Director, ongoing

The Fairgrounds was once a dilapidated empty lot in Kensington, Philadelphia. In 2011, Little Berlin was given permission from The Viking Mill to convert the lot into a community space for gardens, sculptures, and events. In 2012, Little Berlin was awarded a $10,000 match through the Knight Arts Challenge to continue the project.

I am currently the Project Director for The Fairgrounds. My responsibilities include managing the gardening schedule, coordinating with sculptors & installation artists, and allocating funding for the project.
