Dynamics of Culture

Dynamics of Culture

 

SIAP began in 1994 to develop methods for examining the character of Philadelphia's cultural sector and understanding its impact on communities throughout the city and region. The Dynamics of Culture (DOC), a project undertaken from 2003 to 2005 with support by the Rockefeller Foundation, enabled the research team to refine and replicate its earlier investigations and develop new methods for understanding the role of artists and the informal sector.

During the Dynamics of Culture phase, in partnership with the Penn Urban Studies Program, SIAP used its research to generate a broader public conversation about the role that the arts play in promoting the well-being of Philadelphia and its neighborhoods.
