Coming This Fall: The Inaugural Delco Arts Week!

Signature Image: 

National Arts Advocacy Day on March 5 had a special meaning this year for our members and friends in Delaware County: it was the day that plans for this fall’s first-ever Delco Arts Week were announced at a special reception and press briefing at the Community Arts Center in Wallingford.

U.S. Representative Mary Gay Scanlon (PA-5), whose district includes all of Delaware County, spoke at the press briefing and highlighted the many positive economic and community benefits that arts and culture brings to the county.

Delco Arts Week (September 21-28, 2019) is a partnership between the Delaware County Arts Consortium and the Cultural Alliance. Sponsored by the Foundation for Delaware County and Destination Delco, the week will feature dozens of cultural events and activities for audiences of every age, all designed to showcase the diverse array of cultural assets available to Delaware County residents and visitors. The week will be supported with a comprehensive marketing and promotional campaign, which will include visibility on Phillyfunguide and Funsavers.

The Cultural Alliance has provided technical assistance and support to the Delaware County Arts Consortium since its inception in 2009. DCAC is a collaborative of cultural organizations working to advance the economic vitality of the nonprofit arts and culture community and promote the value of cultural resources to the local community.
