How CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia embodies the collaboration ethos

Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area. 


Think of CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia as a hub for arts and culture nonprofits in the city. That’s meant literally.

Led by collaboration enthusiast Thaddeus Squire, CultureWorks is both a physical coworking space that members can use as an office and a management commons that offers an array of resources to nonprofits, including a consulting service called CoPilot and fiscal sponsorship through CultureWorks’ charitable arm, CultureTrust.

And those resources didn’t arise from “CultureWorks staff sitting around thinking, ‘Oh, these programs would be really beneficial,'” said Community Engagement Co-Director Melissa Hamilton. “It really is from listening to our members and figuring out what they really need.”

Learn more in her and fellow Co-Director Rashanda Freeman’s “Around the Corner” with Generocity Editor Julie Zeglen.
