Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance Co-Present Arts and Community Development: Dynamic Partners
Want to fill some vacant storefronts? Develop activities for kids? Partner with a neighborhood developer or artist?
Then please join the Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance as we co-present Arts and Community Development: Dynamic Partners. This workshop and panel discussion will take place on Thursday, September 08, from 12:30 - 2:30 PM at Asian Arts Initiative located at 1219 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107.
This will be an excellent opportunity to learn how community development organizations, artists and cultural groups are working collaboratively both to advance revitalization strategies, to find needed space and to develop community programs. Hear first-hand about innovative best practices, explore partnership building that could lead to new sources of funding and see how data can help you tell your community’s story more effectively.
Special guests will include Maggie Mailer, Co-founder of Pittsfield Storefront Artist Project, a nationally-recognized model using arts as an economic catalyst for a distressed city. We will also have a panel of local experts from the Asian Arts Initiative, Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation, Neighborhood Bike Works, 40th Street Artists in Residence project and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.
