Drexel and Penn Medicine to Pilot New Program Uniting Major Employers and Cultural Institutions

Drexel University and Penn Medicine will join to launch the Philadelphia Cultural Pass pilot grant program, an effort to support vital arts and cultural institutions in the city, offer valuable new opportunities for staff, and attract top talent to the region. The Philadelphia Cultural Pass program will provide a fresh pathway to introduce employees and their families to internationally renowned arts institutions and the concerts, exhibits, and performances that have put Philadelphia on the map as a pre-eminent hub for the arts. The pilot program also aims to broaden the reach of these institutions to more people that work and live around Philadelphia, and to build a community of ambassadors who are active participants in the region’s cultural economy.
