To capture all the excitement buzzing around the state leading up to #ArtsMatterDay on October 24th, we created a visual worthy of the community’s efforts. Check out our Arts Matter Partners Map charting out all the activity from arts and cultural groups taking action on Arts Matter Day.  For each dot on the map, there is a group acting to show the candidates that arts matter to them and should matter in our upcoming state elections. 

There's over a hundred of organizations that are taking action on October 24th. To find out how you can take action check out our Arts Matter Day page.

On October 24th, help us celebrate by visiting one of these Arts Matter Partners’ venues and engaging in political discourse around the arts.


#ArtsMatterDay isn’t just happening at arts and cultural institutions – it’s happening online. To reach candidates and Massachusetts voters, MASSCreative is drumming up the action on social media and injecting arts and culture into the conversation about our next elected officials and their platforms.

You can join that conversation.

On October 24th, we want the hashtag #ArtsMatter to catch fire on social media. You can help amplify the message through our Thunderclap page. Thunderclap is a tool that allows us to send out a message from a critical mass of supporters simultaneously.

We need 100 sign-ups to reach that critical mass.

Sign up and we can blast out a timed Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr post from all our supporters on #ArtsMatterDay! Can we get this trending? We think so. 

RSVP to our Facebook Event page to share what YOU’RE doing for #ArtsMatterDay and see what others are working on. You may be inspired to take on your own creative project. 

Check out the latest #ArtsMatter stories, pictures, videos, and projects from the community on our Storify page. You might even see yourself.
