Certificate in Arts in Community


Pepon Osorio, Chair

Tyler School of Art Building

Administrative Suite Room 210J

The Arts in Community Program (ACP) was started as a commitment to the many and varied communities in Philadelphia and to Tyler students' education as artists to combine artistic disciplines with skills and knowledge in community organizing, positioning them for an expanded civic role in the 21st century. ACP develops and delivers university courses, after-school workshops, intergenerational forums, inter-disciplinary performances and site-specific installations. At the heart of the program are community partnerships and internships that enable Tyler/Temple students to expand their art disciplines as community collaborators. During the last several years ACP has created a body of community-based arts works, establishing a network of relationships and ongoing presence in neighborhoods that translates into continued projects. During this time, we have worked with youth and adults, organizations and families, in North Philadelphia neighborhoods and beyond, building a broad range of community arts partnerships that stimulate dialogue and share history to create exhibitions and interdisciplinary performances based on community lives and stories and shared student experiences.

As part of this program, Tyler offers an undergraduate Certificate in Arts in Community on the Main Campus only. The undergraduate certificate consists of a four-course, 12-credit sequence. Both matriculated and non-matriculated students may register for these courses.  The required courses for the undergraduate certificate are:
