Building Statewide Support for State Arts Funding this Spring


This budget season, when state leaders determine the level of the Commonwealth’s investment in the arts, MASSCreative will provide arts leaders the forum to tell their stories to their elected representative and senators.

Every spring, MASSCreative invites Massachusetts elected officials to meet with artists, arts leaders, and the public to discuss the strengths, challenges, and opportunities facing the creative community. Perhaps you or a friend attended MASSCreative’s Arts Matter Advocacy Day at the State House in 2015 or 2017, or a district meeting or regional training in 2014 or 2016.

This spring, MASSCreative is planning six Local Arts Advocacy District Meetings to be held in the Berkshires, Pioneer Valley, Worcester, Northeastern MA, Boston, and Southeastern MA in late April and May.

As a statewide collaborator to ArtWeek MA, we’re excited to inject arts advocacy into hundreds of events happening statewide April 27-May 6 and invite thousands of arts supporters to engage with their local elected officials during our district meetings following the 10-day creative festival for all.

Stay tuned for more details and dates in the next couple of weeks. Our staff is excited to provide another opportunity for artists, arts leaders, and supporters to share your stories, ask for what you need as members of the creative community, and engage with your local elected officials for local impact.
