Big Red & Shiny interviews MASSCreative's Matt Wilson

Matt_9.9_edit.jpgAs part of it's new interview series, "Boston Common," Big Red & Shiny talks to Matt Wilson about MASSCreative and the cultural sector. 

When asked about one challenge that the creative community faces, Matt offered up this answer: 

"Boston is in the bottom five among major cities for investment in the arts and cultural community. We need to correct this with dedicated revenue streams. After raising the issue several times in conversation with mayoral candidates throughout the Create the Vote campaign, the new mayor has committed to creating a line item in the city budget for the arts. As Mayor-elect Walsh begins his transition phase, the Create the Vote coalition is ready to work with him to help him develop a stable and adequate funding source for the arts line in the budget."
