Performances in Public Spaces, OACCE’s neighborhood-based performance series, presents free quality arts activities in outdoor community spaces across Philadelphia. In past years, activities ranged from Shakespeare-in- the-Park, to circus arts, to a silent film played with live music, to family-friendly theatre productions. Performances reflect Philadelphia’s vibrant and diverse cultural community. (June – October)
Culture in Neighborhoods offers family-friendly arts programming in City buildings such as Community Schools, recreation centers, libraries, and older adult centers. From dance instruction, to art-making, to musical performances, to writing workshops, this initiative uses these neighborhood assets to promote community connection and increase access to quality art and cultural experiences. (Year-Round)
These initiatives are a major part of OACCE’s work to connect our city’s children, youth, and adults to enriching arts-infused experiences, and close the gap in access to quality opportunities for arts education, instruction, and creativity.
