We are proud to announce that The Resource Exchange received a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts PPA Project Stream grant! The award will help support our reCreate Program which was started to promote creative reuse in the arts. We do this by featuring the work of one artist per month who uses reclaimed materials in our store gallery space, by organizing one free or low cost workshop per month that focuses on creative reuse, and by tracking, sharing, and writing about customers who creatively reuse our materials in the visual and performing arts. Stop by our in store gallery and reCreate space this weekend during Philadelphia Open Studio Tours and you can see the creative work of our visiting Mandela Washington Fellow from Ghana, Johannes Arthur.
Pennsylvania Council on the Arts is a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
