Arts at Your Side
It is well recognized that the arts play a unique role in the enhancement of quality of life. Access to the arts is even more critical for those whose quality of life is compromised by physical, mental, emotional, social, environmental and/or economic problems. In response, Arts at Your Side was created as the community service initiative of the Center.
Arts at Your Side provides specially designed arts experiences and arts engagement directly to residents of the Philadelphia region so that their lives may be positively influenced and their well-being improved. By utilizing the power of the arts to give voice to their human conditions, to accompany them through their struggles, to provide a creative outlet for their feelings, to provide stability in times of turmoil, to help them maintain their identities through crisis, and to soothe, heal, comfort and instill hope, Arts at Your Side provides an innovative service to those most greatly in need.
