Supporting Work at the Intersection of Arts, Education,
Healing and Social Justice

We Support Arts Organizations

The Stockton Rush Bartol foundation Supports the Arts, Education, Healing and Social Justice

We support Philadelphia arts organizations through grants and through professional development for their teaching artists and arts education administrators.
Organizations outside of Philadelphia are welcome to join us for workshops and selected trauma-informed practice training opportunities.

“We bring radical joy to the world of theatre in non-traditional spaces and invite our neighbors to use their freedom of expression by taking up space with our bodies, our language, our cultures, and our stories.”

Grants for Philadelphia Arts Organizations

The Bartol Foundation makes grants to Philadelphia arts organizations and/or projects that focus on arts education programs by and for the communities they serve through:

  • Strong arts education teaching practices (in any art form) that provide in-depth, hands-on creative experiences and supportive spaces for your participants (of any age);
  • Curriculum and content that is relevant to and respectful of your participants’ cultures and identities; and,
  • An alignment between the demographics of the board|staff|teaching artists of your organization and the people you are engaging to ensure that you understand the needs and perspective of your community.


Bartol provides professional development programs for teaching artists to help make them better teachers and stronger entrepreneurs.  Programs are available for artists in all disciplines. 

Workshops are developed in direct response to the needs of teaching artists, combining discipline-based sessions with training in marketing and partnerships, all with a trauma-informed lens.  Artists in all disciplines, in Philly and beyond, are welcome to join us.

Trauma-Informed Practice

The Bartol Foundation offers training to organizations in trauma-informed practices for teaching artists, arts education administrators, arts education university students and faculty. Workshops range from 4 hours to a full 20-hour training based on your needs and budget. Each workshop is designed to combine the theory of how trauma affects the brain, trust and behavior with specific applications for your community or art form.

If you are outside of Philadelphia and interested in opportunities for this training, find more information here about bringing this training to your community.
