Arts Sanctuary

Art Sanctuary, founded in North Philadelphia, uses the power of black art to transform individuals, unite groups of people, and enrich, and draw inspiration from the inner city. Board and staff members have worked hard for twelve years to create a learning culture adequate to support the mission.  We present, produce, commission, create, and teach artistic excellence. We hustle to pay for it. The art must be life-giving, not comfortable and happy-happy, but enriching to a community long hobbled by scarcity and injustice. Our work now is to keep advancing: with a new building, stronger infrastructure, and new technologies. For excellence in the arts. In the community. For real.

Volunteer Opportunities include:
