World Cafe Live is a nonprofit organization founded on the principles of welcoming. Our mission is to open doors to shared music and culinary experiences that create connections, inspire learning and celebrate who we all are. We are a place for music. We are a place for learning. We are a place for community.
Since opening in 2004, we have been a vibrant hub for independent live music in Philadelphia. We invite over 150,000 people through our doors every year, supporting emerging and established artists, creating educational programs, and welcoming audiences of all ages and abilities. In addition to presenting over 500 shows each year, World Cafe Live offers great food and beverages daily and caters over two hundred special events annually.
Shifting from recovery to resilience, we are now enthusiastically preparing to re-open this fall with a renewed focus on civic engagement, accessibility, and what it means to define a positive WCL experience for all employees, artists, and guests. As an equal-opportunity employer, we strive to create a space where you can bring your authentic whole self to work. We look forward to you joining our team.
