Philly Artist Resources Guide

Intro

This is a list of resources, kind of a meta-resource if you will. A list of lists. (Some of the items on this list are even lists of lists, lol, it goes deep.) There are so many different resources in Philly for artists looking to find out different types of information, but often times people don't know about all the resources out there!! I hope this guide helps you find some helpful resources for your life as an artist in Philly!

 

I'm going to continue updating it if it's helpful. If you have a resource that you think I should add (or any other feedback) please fill out this super simple google form and let me know!!

This is a link to the guide, but I would recommend that you read the below info about how to use it! You could just dive in, but it will probably be overwhelming! 

Tags

In my humble opinion, the first thing you're gonna want to do is peruse this list of tags. You can filter the guide using these tags to find exactly what you're looking for. You can use a bunch of tags together to really narrow down your search, or just use one if you want to search more broadly.

Step by step how to use this thing

Step 5. Click on the ▼ icon next to Select an option, and a drop down list of the tags will appear. You can toggle them off/on based on whether you want to use them to search for resources. If you toggle on multiple tags, that means you will search for entries that are tagged with all of those tags, and this will really narrow your search.

Toggled off:
