THE CAMPAIGN FOR "THE OLNEY EMBRACE PROJECT"
by Olney Culture Lab
2020 has been both unusual and difficult. Through it all, Olney Culture Lab remains committed to celebrating our unique neighborhood and its diverse cultures. Join us as we "embrace" Philadelphia's Olney community. Please consider making a year-end gift.
We are working with an amazing team of distinguished artists, dancers and musicians from Philadelphia (many from Olney itself) who will spend the next year and a half creating works that explore and shine a light on what makes Olney a unique place to live, work and play.
Our events and activities will vary in scope; and we will prioritize work that is responsive to evolving health and safety concerns. Ultimately, as these conditions improve, we will begin to include in-person presentations, workshops, exhibitions, and performances, along with our expanding array of online, digital and virtual broadcasts and productions. We also plan to launch some "out-of-the-box" efforts, and we look forward to collaborating with members of the local community to address some of the challenges that have heightened during pandemic, such as food insecurity, limited access to physical activity, and meaningful outlets to express and expel the impacts of common and pandemic-related stress.
Olney Culture Lab is forging ahead with our re-imagined plans for 2020 and beyond. We realize that this is a journey, and not a sprint. Along the way, we ask and invite you to join us.
Become an end-of-year supporter of this special project! Your partnership and generosity will make a difference. Help us as we create new opportunities to bring hope, inspiration and recognition to Olney. With your assistance we will reaffirm the humanity and creative spirit in all of us during these difficult times.
DONATE $25 or More
For a $25 donation, you'll receive a "hot-off-the-press" autographed CD recording of Professor Randy J. Gibson's original jazz music collection, "Tacony Creek Suite." This monumental creative achievement was born out of the unique cross-sector collaboration between Olney Culture Lab, Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership and Professor Gibson. The Suite, commissioned by Olney Culture Lab, is the Professor's authentic response to the beauty and travails of the under-appreciated urban green space in our midst - Tacony Creek Park.
