Operations Manager
Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation


Danielle Swan is the Operations Manager for the Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation. Originally from New Jersey, Danielle spent ten years in Oregon, where she obtained her Bachelors in Communications from Southern Oregon University in 2004. She fell in love with the west coast and made it home for the next several years, working in the non-profit theater sector. In 2011 she decided to go back to school for her Master’s degree and made the trek back across the country to attend Drexel’s Arts Administration program. During her studies she served as the President of the student association and accepted a job offer to work in the department of Arts and Entertainment Enterprise in Westphal College. Danielle wrote her thesis on the impact of arts programming and creative placemaking on a community using West Philadelphia as a case study. She loves living and working in West Philly and is excited to be working so closely with the community through her new position at Lindy.
