Partnership includes free use of Vectorworks software available on Headlong’s computers Global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. continues its support of the Philadelphia Design Center, recently acquired by Headlong Dance Theater, by donating computers and software licenses to the local community of designers and creative professionals. Headlong fosters the creative ecosystem by providing educational opportunities, financial advice and strategic planning. “Vectorworks has been an amazing partner over the years with their in-demand software being invaluable to our members and their willingness to assist whenever we had questions about the software,” said Karen DiLossi, director of arts in sacred places at Partners for Sacred Places. DiLossi was part of the team that spearheaded efforts for the opening of the Philadelphia Design Center. “There would have been no Philadelphia Design Center without their contribution and continued support in this new phase of life. More businesses and corporations should think like Vectorworks when it comes to the communities they serve and who benefits the most from using their products.” In 2016, Vectorworks donated software, computers and training opportunities during the grand opening of the Philadelphia Design Center. With this continued partnership, 12 Vectorworks Designer licenses and 12 iMac computers will be donated to both the South Philadelphia and Center City computer labs. As of August 2019, Headlong took over the Philadelphia Design Center. When DiLossi’s team was looking for the next best step for the Center, they wanted to ensure the organization that was selected kept their core values of accessibility, affordability and creativity all packaged in a supportive environment. According to DiLossi, “Headlong rings true to all of those values, and we couldn't be happier handing off our Design Center to their capable hands and minds. They’ve been a supportive and innovative thinker in Philadelphia's cultural community for a long time, so it makes sense that they wanted to take the Design Center to a higher level.” “Headlong is passionate about supporting the vital work of independent designers in Philadelphia through our partnership with Vectorworks,” said David Brick, co-founder and artistic director of Headlong. “With Vectorworks’ generous support we are able to provide design tools for the cutting-edge work of artists, designers and performance productions. With this program, independent and low-to-the-ground designers working in Philadelphia’s rich and diverse performance and art scene will have access to design tools as sophisticated as their vision.” “It's remarkable to have another opportunity to help grow and develop Philadelphia’s most diverse design talent,” said Vectorworks Marketing Director Alice Lowy. “Providing our most versatile set of design and 3D modeling tools to a diverse group of visionaries helps them to take on challenges, and aids in fulfilling their creative dreams and beyond.” Learn more about the software the South Philadelphia and Center City computer labs will be using.
