The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance is partnering with the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce on their new campaign "Roadmap for Growth for the City of Philadelphia: 2015-2020." This campaign seeks to develop a growth agenda for the city that promotes job creation and economic prosperity through 2020. As the Philadelphia cultural sector has a $2.8 billion economic impact on the city's economy and generates close to 30,000 jobs, we at the Cultural Alliance believe it is imperative that we take part in this discussion about the future of Philadelphia.
