MISSION: The Art + Business Council of Greater Philadelphia (ABC) strengthens our creative sector, including arts, culture and for-profit creative businesses, by engaging the business, legal and technology communities, providing capacity-building services, and serving as a thought leader and a convener. ABC, with the support of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce (GPCC), is uniquely positioned to actively connect the creative sector with the business, legal and technology communities.

ABOUT: For over 30 years, ABC has been a catalyst for strengthening the capacity of arts and cultural organizations through partnerships with the business sector. These partnerships build business support for the arts and help make the region a more attractive place to live, work and visit. As importantly, the partnerships provide employees with professional development and leadership opportunities, as well as ways to improve work/life balance. In addition to our capacity building, skills-based volunteer programs, ABC acts as a thought leader and convener by bringing world-class speakers like Sheryl Sandberg, Simon Sinek and Arianna Huffington to the Philadelphia region.
