Making history with first-ever gubernatorial arts debate


The creative community made history together when 500 arts and cultural supporters gathered for the first-ever gubernatorial candidate forum dedicated to arts and cultural issues. On July 15, Don Berwick, Martha Coakley, Evan Falchuk, Mark Fisher, Steve Grossman, and Jeff McCormick joined us at The Hanover Theatre in Worcester to answer questions from the community about arts, culture, and creativity. Ultimately, the event showed the candidates that arts matter in Massachusetts and should matter in this election.
