Partners for Sacred Places
Partners for Sacred Places created the Philadelphia Theatrical Design Center. The Center is the first of its kind: a low-cost, co-working space for costume, set, lighting and sound designers who often do not have formal workspaces or opportunities to easily work with others. The Center will has the necessary space and equipment for both individual designers and theater organizations.
Update: After a false start when the original location for the Design Center fell through, Partners regrouped, found an alternative space and continued conversations with the design community to determine the best uses for the Center. The Center will launch in the spring of 2016 in Greys Ferry. Costume, set, lighting and sound designers will be able to utilize the Center’s resources, which include shared office facilities, a costume construction shop and computers with Vectorworks drafting software.
