Fairmount Park Conservancy was honored to be selected for the Community Development Investments program of ArtPlace America in 2015. One of six not-for-profits across the country, Fairmount Park Conservancy has been given the opportunity to invest in arts and culture as part of its mission to make Philadelphia’s park system a national model of urban revitalization, sustainability and civic engagement.
Join us over the next three years as we explore how the work of artists and cultural organizations can enrich our neighborhood parks and make our signature watershed parks hum with vitality, interpretation and community connection.
