In the arts and culture arena, Pew supports organizations, artists, and projects that inspire, educate, and entertain diverse audiences throughout the Philadelphia region. Through the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage Pew encourages arts and cultural organizations to take innovative approaches in programming, audience engagement, and organizational management. Each spring, the center awards financial support for cultural programs and fellowships through a competitive peer-review process.
Pew also provides support for special, specific projects that enhance Philadelphia’s cultural vibrancy and improve the city’s broader economic outlook. And we partner with the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance to enhance audience engagement among the Philadelphia region’s arts and culture organizations.
