The Philadelphia Channel celebrates the creative, innovative minds and collaborative endeavors that transcend barriers often created between corporations and nonprofits, or cultural groups acting as islands without meaningful ties to others.
The 21st century brings with it countless opportunities for growth, for change, for maximizing the benefit we have on our surroundings, our people. We at Arch Street Press encourage multidisciplinary collaboration with other organizations in the Philadelphia region, keeping down those barriers while actively contributing to positive social change.
Keith Haring’s mural “We Are the Youth” at 22nd and Ellsworth Streets in Philadelphia was completed in 1987 in collaboration with the CityKids Foundation, a New York-based youth organization. The mural was restored in 2013 by the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which added “The Haring Garden.” Used by permission. Keith Haring artwork © Keith Haring Foundation
