Philadelphia Scenic Works (PSW) believes safety is essential for our technicians and in the scenery we fabricate. PSW follows a comprehensive safety plan. Our work spaces and the scenery we provide always must be safe, above all else.
We believe in hiring the best scenic fabrication artists to maintain and/or improve the quality of professional theatre in the region. We practice policies that promote excellence.
FAIR WAGES & PRACTICES
We believe that the sustainability of the scenic fabrication industry is dependent on a strong group of carpenters, painters, & welders who create the work. By investing in these individuals, PSW will support the growth and development of this field, which can then better support the area’s arts industry as a whole.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, & JUSTICE
We believe that diversity at all levels of the organization is essential for productive and collaborative work. PSW is committed to being an actively anti-racist organization constantly reviewing and assessing our internal practices, business decisions, and programs.
PSW partners with local vendors and suppliers that share the values of PSW whenever possible.
We believes that education is critical to the future of the scenic fabrication field and is dedicated to providing educational opportunities.
COMMUNITY & COLLABORATION
PSW believes in cultivating and engaging a more collaborative community of scenic fabrication artists and professional theatres. PSW believes working hand-in-hand with the arts organizations it serves to deliver excellence.
We believe in sharing, collaborating, recycling and re-purposing are practices that lead toward a less wasteful and more sustainable industry.
PSW believes it has a responsibility to share as much as possible with the community it serves. Whether that is through our open dialogues regarding costs/quotes with partners or sharing our internal policy and strategic planning initiatives.
