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 foster collaboration and exchange between the creative and business communities for the social and economic benefit of the Greater Philadelphia region.


The Philadelphia region has a competitive advantage among American cities because of the beneficial exchange between its creative and business communities.
