For more than a century, International House Philadelphia has served the scholars of the world and the Greater Philadelphia community by providing engaging residential services and compelling arts and humanities programming, welcoming hundreds of thousands of people through its doors in the process. What began in Philadelphia more than 100 years ago as a belief that international understanding, cooperation, and friendship can develop one person at a time, has emerged as a celebrated world-wide movement.
Moving from the past and into the present, IHP is a thriving hub of activity: a home to hundreds of students and interns throughout the year, a destination for world-class arts and cultural programming, a facility for large-scale events, and a partner with many regional organizations, foundations, institutions, and businesses.

Founded in 1974 by Latino artists and activists in the North Kensington area of Philadelphia, Taller Puertorriqueño stands as testament to the wealth of possibilities created when citizens see a need in their community and decide to meet it. Discouraged by the absence of outlets for Barrio youth desperate to channel their artistic talents, Taller Puertorriqueño's founders created a community-based graphic arts workshop to provide cultural training alternatives to local youth. It is now nationally recognized as a model organization that uses the arts as a vehicle for social change.

Our goal is to facilitate effective diplomacy by bringing the voice of the people into the peace process.
