We’re back! Earlier this month, we held our first in-person event in two years at PAFA. It was great to see our community talking and exchanging business cards before the program, and lingering around with our guest speakers afterwards. These are the kinds of moments that Zoom simply cannot recreate.

We hope you’ll join us for the 37th Annual Awards, where we will take in-person energy and serendipity to the next level. We will have an amazing room of 300+ artists and business people, all together to celebrate this powerful connection between creative and business communities.

You won’t want to miss our special showcase of awardees that make Philly so unique and vibrant. We’ll have musical performances by Orchestra 2001. We’ll hear some amazing stories of cultural connection during the pandemic from Visit Philly and the Barnes Foundation. And then we’ll have a lengthy cocktail party to catch up – inside and on the patio of the fabulous Barnes Foundation.

Lastly, we need you to show your support. Do you believe that the creative community needs the engagement of local businesses to thrive? And do you believe that the business community needs arts and culture to remain innovative and connected to the city? If so, show up. This movement is only as strong as the people who champion it.
