Advocacy

Together we can build a greater Greater Philadelphia for our children, for our families and for each other.

Together we can build a greater Greater Philadelphia for our children, for our families and for each other.

The Cultural Alliance is a tireless advocate for arts and culture at every level. We’ve worked hard to build relationships in Washington, Harrisburg, City Hall and in county and municipal governments from around the region. But, while it is always good to have friends and allies in politics, long-term sustainable change can be achieved only by mobilizing the public and building a grassroots movement of concerned citizens, residents and constituents.

Our goal is to develop a network of interconnected and committed advocates and supporters who can see the bigger picture. By using the resources below, you can be a part of this powerful network. Together, we can take action on community issues that matter to all of us and make Greater Philly even greater. 

Our newest initiative is the Agenda series. The Agenda series highlights existing research and resources that demonstrate the relevance and impact of arts and culture in Greater Philadelphia, throughout the Commonwealth and across the country. Find out more about Agenda at philaculture.org/agenda.

Agenda: Pre-K is the first in this series of new advocacy tools that outline the impact of arts and culture not only on the economy but also on the issues that most affect our daily lives: education, wellness, social justice and more. Find more about Agenda: Pre-K at philaculture.org/prek.
