We’re happy to announce that Mascher is a 2014 recipient of the Bartol Foundation Grant! Thanks to Community Engagement Coordinator Christina Gesualdi for all her efforts in making this happen.
With help from the Bartol Foundation Mascher can continue our outreach program, pairing up with Kat Richter and The Lady Hoofers and Moffet Elementary School to offer a long-term tap immersion for 60 fifth grade students from the neighboring school.
Stay tuned for future updates and to learn how to get involved! For now, read up about the amazing educators – Kat Richter and The Lady Hoofers – and find out more about Moffet Elementary School and its mission. You can also see Bartol’s awesome mission here and check out the other 2014 grantees, many of which are also located and/or provide arts education in Kensington.

We raised $3,000 with the help of 56 fabulous funders. Thank you to everyone who participated! The idea of crowd-source funding is completely in line with our values of collective support as an artist coop – we go far when everyone pitches in a little!
We are the only cooperatively-managed performing arts residency program in Philadelphia. Mascher primarily thrives on the member dues of its Artists-in-Residence (AIRs), and their volunteer hours. Our expenses have increased while our member dues have stayed low, and now we need you- our audience, community, and partners to support our continued financial stability.
This past year, we’ve supported 24 artists and companies. We’ve presented some amazing programs, and made some great improvements to the space. We want to continue the work we are doing!
