We are all wired to create.

We support a stronger creative economy in Philadelphia.

Arts, culture and the creative economy contribute to Philadelphia’s vibrancy and livability. They also generate more than $4 billion in economic activity and more than 50,000 jobs. The Arts + Business Council is dedicated to ensuring the success of Philadelphia’s creative economy through leadership development programs, events and volunteer opportunities that help make the sector more productive, impactful and inclusive.

We invite you to read our brochure explaining our programs or to get in touch with comments, questions or ideas for partnering.


To accelerate the effectiveness and impact of organizations, businesses, and individuals who make up Philadelphia’s creative economy.


An informed, inspired, and networked creative economy is a more inclusive, productive, and impactful one. We believe we can play a role in making Philadelphia the best city to run a nonprofit, build an art practice, or grow a creative business through our capacity-building services and learning opportunities.
