Event Details


Day 2 - September 10, 2022

Join us as we invite the masterminds behind Tiny Room for Elephants, a network of creatives that fuses art and music with one goal in mind: to create unique experiences for artists, brands and consumers, to the B. PHL Stage. Over the last few years, this team has been able to build a safe space for artists of all mediums to collaborate, test new concepts and theories, and learn how to make their art come to life. In this dialogue, we’ll explore what it means to curate experiences for artists  that are not consumer focused. This session was built by creatives, with creatives in mind. 


Speaker Information
Lawren Alice headshot

Lawren Alice

As artist, muralist, and curator, Lawren Alice has served Philadelphia’s rich artistic community in myriad forms. Originally hailing from New England, Lawren has called Philly home since 2003. After briefly studying at University of the Arts, in 2012 she co-founded a premiere gallery and boutique, Arch Enemy Arts, recently celebrating her tenth year as its curator. As a skilled painter, Lawren employs a keen sense of design through uniquely stylized and symmetrical filigree, taking inspiration from both multicultural ornaments and urban street art. In 2020 she was selected for Collective Arts Brewing’s Circle the Sun cider label design, and again in 2021 for Collective Arts Distilling, designing the label for their award winning Lavender & Juniper flavored gin. Moving to large-scale compositions, she has painted both interior and exterior murals along the East Coast, including the storefront mural for Honeygrow's original Test Kitchen location in Fishtown in 2020, a twenty-five foot installation at Philadelphia International Airport in 2021, and recently a thirty foot mural for the L.E.A.F. Flower Show in NYC's Meatpacking District on the famed Gansevoort Hotel earlier this Summer.

Jacqueline Constance

Not one to wait for a musician to make her magic happen, Jacqueline also produces some of her own material. Armed with just a mic, her digital sampling, foot pedal and a small mixer, Jacqueline turns breaths, sighs and words into funky orchestral pastures for her lyrics to frolic through.

"This is Nu-Soul"- TC Helicon official facebook page. Philly based singer/songwriter, Jacqueline Constance blends her R&B and Hip Hop command into a swirling emotional stew. With a warm, yet strident voice she creates daring and fiery stories in sound. 

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Jacqueline is inspired by jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, which is apparent in her vocal nuances and soulful timbre. Her songs speak to those who are creating their own lane by adding lasting melodies to their own life story. Garnering the attention from acts such as Bj the Chicago Kid, Phonte and Zo from The Foreign Exchange, Questlove, Anderson Paak, St Beauty, Earl St Clair and many others, she has created a pathway for herself unlike anything that has been seen or heard before.
