Cultural Alliance Names New Policy Director
Philadelphia, PA — The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance is pleased to announce that it has named Anne Marie Rhoades as its new Director of Policy & Community Engagement.
Rhoades comes to the Alliance after years of policy experience in fundraising and communications for political campaigns and elected offices in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Missouri. Most recently, she served as Campaign Manager for the successful City Council At-Large primary campaign for Allan Domb and was Operations Director for the New Leaders Council, a training program for young, progressive professionals.
“We are very excited to welcome Anne Marie to the Cultural Alliance team,” said Cultural Alliance President Maud Lyon. “We look forward to having her expertise on the full range of the Alliance’s policy and community engagement activities, including government relations, our GroundSwell grassroots advocacy program, and the STAMP teen program.”
“I’m thrilled to be joining the Cultural Alliance,” said Rhoades. “This is a pivotal year for Philadelphia’s cultural community, with a new Mayor and an increasing recognition of the role the arts play in critical issues for the region including public education, tourism and community health. I look forward to working with civic and cultural leaders to ensure that arts and culture remains at the forefront of the city’s renaissance.”
Rhoades replaces Nicole Allen White, who left the Alliance in August to serve as Director of Government and External Affairs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
