More hands to get your work done.
CultureWorks is a management commons for creatives. Track 1 gives our members access to flexible staffing, advisory services and classes to support a wide range of management functions. It is one piece of a broader offering that includes fiscal management, HR, insurance and a nonprofit umbrella through Track 2, and—coming soon—marketing and fundraising through Track 3. We provide equitable access to management resources for the makers and preservers of culture.
Our Affiliate Network allows CultureWorks to expand the breadth and depth of support we offer our members. It connects experienced professional service providers with innovative cultural organizations—lowering barriers to accessing support and helping our creative community flourish.
We are looking for professional service providers in a broad range of fields—from legal and accounting to institutional advancement and design—who have a demonstrated passion for the arts, creative and preservation sectors. Our members create dynamic, impactful work with modest operating budgets. CultureWorks allows them to access the support they need to do what they love.
We invite you to join our team!
HOW IT WORKS: We pair projects with Affiliates based on needs or member request. All engagements are managed by the CultureWorks Consulting team, who provide:
- Process / Logistics Management to preserve project timelines and scope
- Deliverable Review to ensure alignment with client needs
- Contracting & Billing for oversight and client ease
Affiliates offer their services to CultureWorks members at accessible rates, with discounts of up to 50%. We welcome professional services providers that work at a variety of price points—from those already working at sliding scale or below-market rates to those that typically work at a premium to market prices. Our goals are twofold: a) to connect our members to needed technical resources and b) to connect service providers with innovative cultural projects. Pricing and discounts will be suited to the engagement. All billings for your time are paid to you. CultureWorks will bill the client for project management in a separate line item.
As an Affiliate, you are never obligated to accept a proposed project. Every effort will be made to distribute client work equitably among Affiliates. However, participation in the Affiliate Network does not guarantee an engagement with our members.
WHAT YOU GET: Affiliates benefit from our vibrant member community. Our members work in diverse reaches of the Greater Philadelphia cultural sector and include:
- Community builders and educators like SkatePhilly and North Philly Peace Park.
- Curators like the Philadelphia Latino Film Festival and Philadelphia Jazz Project.
- Preservationists like Glen Foerd on the Delaware and Friends of 19th St Baptist Church.
- Capacity-builders like Small But Mighty Arts and The Head and the Hand Press.
As an Affiliate, you have the potential to build your client roster; there are no restrictions on working with our members outside of the Affiliate program. CultureWorks will also market and promote your work through our webpage and to our members.
Affiliates also benefit from CultureWorks’ project support. We match you with our members, manage contracting and billing. As project managers, the CultureWorks team will take on the administrative aspects of the engagement and ensure a smooth relationship throughout.
