Questions of Practice

As a hub for the exchange of ideas and ongoing dialogue on issues critical to cultural practice, we present a lively range of activities. Our Questions of Practice research series of online essays and interviews, symposia and lectures, and in-depth publications, explores evolving lines of inquiry that respond to our experience as grantmakers and connect Philadelphia’s cultural community with peers nationally and internationally.
