2019 Impact Report

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve taken some time to internally reflect on our growth as a company, past milestones, & the impact we’re creating in the arts community.

As a young, ambitious startup – it’s easy to get caught up in the moment.

We always have a lot going on & while we’re focused on the journey ahead – we wanted to be more intentional & transparent in how we document, celebrate, & share our past work.

2019 was a HUGE year for REC.


  • Raised $3.2 Million Dollars
  • Expanded our full-time team to 17
  • Opened up a 10,000 sq ft. Creative Facility in Center City, Philadelphia

In addition to those milestones, we’re proud of the work our team is doing behind the scenes to pump money back into the local creative economy. Our Agency & Programming teams have been responsible for booking talent around the city, planning & executing events, and project managing marketing campaigns to provide paid client work for our most talented members.

We wanted to take a moment to celebrate & showcase that work because far too often companies “talk” about local impact…but don’t really “show” local impact. With that being said, we’re proud to share our 2019 Impact Report – that outlines the types of projects we managed, the number of artists we booked, & the amount of money we paid out to local creators. A big thank you to everyone that contributed — you’re the reason why we do this.
