Internships Now Available – Summer & Fall 2017
Advocate for Massachusetts’ Arts, Cultural, and Creative Community
From its world class institutions to the community based arts and cultural activities across the state, Massachusetts has one of the most vibrant creative communities in the nation. Despite this, many of our political leaders still look at the arts and cultural community as nice, but not necessary, leaving it open to yearly cuts in service and resources.
Founded in 2012, MASSCreative campaigns have brought together the collective voice of the creative community to advocate for resources and support they need to build vibrant and connected communities. Over the past three years, state investment in the Commonwealth’s cultural community increased by 66%. Our Create the Vote campaign successfully raised the profile of the arts community during the 2014 Gubernatorial election and the 2013 Boston Mayoral election.
