The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy’s announced the Performances in Public Spaces program this past February and Rock to the Future was fortunate enough to be one of the 23 grantees selected from more than 180 applicants! Performances in Public Spaces is funded by the Mayor’s Fund for Philadelphia and the National Endowment for the Arts. We are so excited to be teaming up with Clark Park Fest this year to create a truly special community event – with lots of live performances from diverse local acts, kids music activities and more!
The goal of the Performances in Public Spaces is to create a sense of community within Philadelphia. The performances are to provoke conversations about art in our city. With this exciting collaboration, Philadelphians will get a chance to see their city in a new light and hear new artists with different styles while bringing a sense of community to their local parks.
“We hope that this program will demonstrate the breadth and vitality of Philadelphia’s artistic community, encourage people to explore their interests in performance art and inspire continued creative use of public spaces beyond this program” said Mayor Michael Nutter.
