Barnes West, a collaborative partnership between The Barnes Foundation and People’s Emergency Center, is connecting West Philly artists to our communities in the new Everyday Places Artist Partnership program. Pairing with “everyday places,” such as parks, rec centers, local businesses, service organizations, etc., artists will build interactive, participatory artistic projects for West Philly neighbors.

Partnerships will provide a space for residents to engage with themes of HOPE and HEALING. The program is designed to prioritize West Philly resident voices in the artistic process. Click on the link to learn more details.
