Dynamics of Culture—2003-2005

Dynamics of Culture—2003-2005

 

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 project, with support by the Rockefeller Foundation from 2002 to 2005, enabled the research team to refine and replicate earlier investigations concerning cultural producers and participants as well as develop new methods for understanding the role of artists, their social networks, and the informal arts sector. SIAP used the research, in partnership with the Penn Urban Studies Program, to generate a broader public conversation about the role the arts play in promoting the wellbeing of Philadelphia neighborhoods. The 2003-04 program—Arts In Place: Philadelphia’s Cultural Landscape—is documented as part of the collection.
