The Village of Arts and Humanities

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



Started as a grassroots effort to transform vacant lots into art parks for children in distressed neighborhoods, the village has evolved into a national leader with a successful track record of strengthening communities through innovative arts, educational, social, economic, and youth development programs. This two-year grant supports general operations and establishes an operating-reserve fund.
