Civic Engagement and Partnerships
The Center connects to Philadelphia across a variety of programs and seeks to initiate and sustain collaborative partnerships locally, nationally, and internationally. Partnerships bring together faculty, students, artists, and community members to blend scholarship, social change, and the arts.
Philadelphia Area Creative Collaboratives (PACC)
Supported by a $750,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Philadelphia Area Creative Collaboratives (PACC) program brings together nonprofit organizations, artists, faculty, students and other community members for collaborations that blend social change, art and scholarship. Over a four-year period, the program will develop creative alliances that pair local, regional and international artists with students and faculty to work with community nonprofits and civic advocacy groups.
