In an effort to get students, teachers, and Philadelphians more engaged with the arts community in the city, OACCE reached out to us to create an online searchable database of art experience opportunities called ArtsLink. ArtsLink is a free resource for Philadelphians to discover arts programs from local organizations that best fit their needs or the needs of their community. Users can find programs that best fit their schedule and artists can create opportunities for public viewing on the website itself.
The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) connects Philadelphia’s children, youth, and adults to enriching, arts-infused experiences: closes the gap in access to quality arts education, creative opportunities and cultural activities; and preserves the City’s public art assets.
You can find a link to their website here.
ArtsLink is part of OACCE’s initiative to integrate artistic experiences into the classroom. Since working with us, OACCE has launched this tool publicly and it is currently in use across Philadelphia school districts, allowing for students to engage with the local arts community.
