Arts Funding by Philadelphia and Some Peer Cities Updated (2013)

How does Philadelphia compare to other cities in funding the arts? (Updated for 2013)

The Greater Phildelphia Cultural Alliance periodically analyzes arts funding levels by Philadelphia and some of its peer cities.

This work, done in April 2013, finds that Philadelphia’s peer cities did not seem to be making drastic cuts to their support for arts and culture. In most cases, there were small decreases or level funding. Our 2014 Portfolio, to be released this September, willl feature a comprehensive analysis of 11 cities.
