Municipal Funding

At MASSCreative, we believe that arts, culture, and creativity is a public good that deserves public investment - not just on the federal and state level, but on the municipal level, as well. Just over a dozen of the 329 local cultural councils - less than 4% - receive municipal support for local arts and cultural projects. We're working to increase that number by working with local cultural councils to provide them with the strategies and backup on how to effectively ask your town or city for increased allocations to your local arts scene.

Please contact Tracie Konopinski, our Senior Campaign Organizer, if you would like assistance in working with your municipal leaders to match state funding allocated to your local cultural council.
