The Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation invites artists to respond to their short Teaching Artist Survey. Bartol Foundation aims to making arts more accessible to communities and is currently planning its Teaching Artist Program for this fall. All workshop ideas come from survey participants. They invite anyone to participate, whether they have taken part in a program of theirs before or not. The survey also tells the Foundation who, where and what local artists are teaching so that they can consider other programs that would be helpful to artists’ works.
The Bartol Foundation believes that arts and culture are essential parts of a vibrant community. The arts are a catalyst for meaningful communication and connection, building a strong social fabric in Philadelphia’s neighborhoods. The value of art lies as much in the creative process as the product, as much in its purely aesthetic experience as its unquestionable social value. The Bartol Foundation believes all of their citizens deserve access to compelling creative experiences. These experiences should be grounded in strong artistic practice and relevant to a wide range of cultural traditions and aesthetics. They value the individual artists who are our cultural workers and lend our expertise and resources to programs that advance their place in the community.
