Our mission is to collaborate with leaders committed to positive social change.
The arch supplies a potent metaphor for human creativity and understanding. Shared by the lowliest bridges and the most inspiring cathedrals, the arch unites the practical and the ideal.
Arches abound in communities across all nations and cultures. Many cities and villages have an Arch Street, christened by local inhabitants to signify a byway featuring a particularly impressive arch. Such Arch Streets found across the globe remind us that human creative expression knows no boundaries.
Philadelphia’s Arch Street has special significance for the founders of Arch Street Press, a group of social pioneers and nonprofit entrepreneurs who began their creative work many years ago in Arch Street offices near City Hall.
As arches serve as gateways and function as supports, so too does Arch Street Press support the creativity of leaders who are committed to opening new gateways to the future.
