Why (Give to) Taller?
Taller will build a new facility, which will become the gateway to Philadelphia’s “Barrio” in North Kensington, Philadelphia.
Through the new construction, Taller will create a gathering and meeting place, a crossroads, and a focal point for community pride while successfully addressing handicap accessibility and other operating issues and growing to meet community demand. New studios, gallery space, and a café will make Taller the community’s gathering space, while expanded programs, a larger gift shop, rentable event and incubator spaces for new businesses will offer new revenue streams. The core of this new Taller will be an education wing with more classrooms to serve students from pre-school through college in programs that range from early reading activities to art portfolio preparation and tutoring. Through these efforts, Taller will advance its goals and promote cultural developments which enhance quality of life, especially by motivating promising young people to channel and develop their talents despite social and economic obstacles.
