Follow Our Arts Advocacy Efforts Over on the Philaculture Blog & Social Media!

Thank you for being a GroundSwell advocate and supporting our GroundSwell initiative for the past four years. This week we're announcing that the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance is suspending our GroundSwell initiative and merging it into our general Cultural Alliance communications and advocacy alerts.

The purpose GroundSwell serves will not go away--the Cultural Alliance will continue to play an active role in the grassroots civic movement to make Philadelphia a better place to live, work and play.  We’ll still be bringing you the latest advocacy news and updates and ways for you to be a supporter of arts and culture.

Don’t worry--you do not need to do anything to continue receiving advocacy updates if you were signed up for our GroundSwell email list. These communications will now be coming directly from the Cultural Alliance itself.

Not signed up? You can sign up on our website here. Follow us on social media at and

In addition, we invite you to watch for future emails and social media announcements around a new project we’re working on: a new advocacy tool that outlines the impact of arts and culture not only on the economy but on the issues that most affect our daily lives such as education, wellness, social justice and more. We’re launching the first one this week, so expect an announcement soon!

Thank you!
