Mission & Affiliations

Vision

A thriving creative sector, including arts, culture and for-profit creative businesses, contributes to the economic prosperity and quality of life of Greater Philadelphia. Our creative sector is strengthened with capacity-building services provided by the business, legal & technology communities, while business professionals learn new approaches to creativity, leadership and innovation by working with the creative sector.

Mission

The Arts & Business Council of Greater Philadelphia (ABC) strengthens our creative sector, including arts, culture and for-profit creative businesses, by engaging the business, legal & technology communities, providing capacity-building services, and serving as a thought leader and a convener. ABC, with the support of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, is uniquely positioned to actively connect the creative sector with the business, legal and technology communities. 

Why Arts and Business

When business and the creative community work closely together they:

  • Support a culturally rich and diverse region.
  • Contribute to a strong quality of life.
  • Drive economic development.
  • Stimulate creativity and innovation in companies and the community.
  • Build a foundation of skills for the workforce of the future.
