About Us

The Whole Shebang

acknowledges the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the Lenape First Nation on which we are residing, learning, working and organizing today.

Shebang is the brainchild of Meg Foley and Carmichael Jones – a space that provides a South Philly home for the practices of other working artists and teachers while also supporting their own careers as working artists. It is intended as a space for experimentation, energy collision, and supported trying-out-of-things. Meg is a performer, dancer, choreographer, and director of resident company moving parts whose work investigates how our sense of self is created through our physical experiences. Carmichael is a glass artist and sculptor whose playful and slightly irreverent work explores the everyday and the never-seen-before. As collaborators and partners they intend for The Whole Shebang to be a hub for creative and experimental arts in South Philly.

Shebang contains private studios for flameworking and sculpture, and a public dance and movement studio. Shebang offers classes and workshops in everything from dance performance research to pilates to cross-disciplinary collaboration to small arts business marketing, in addition to offering space rental (at affordable rates for working artists) and hosting performance salons. It is the whole shebang.
