Show the Gubernatorial Candidates that Arts Matter!




Leaders and supporters of the creative community are invited to join us at one of our 10 regional meetings as we take Create the Vote 2014 statewide to ensure that our next governor is a champion of the arts. Over the next seven months the community will have the opportunity to work with creative sector leaders and supporters across the Commonwealth to:

  • Broadcast and share the stories of impact that the creative sector has on our communities. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  • Sit down face to face with the gubernatorial candidates to share views about the arts and cultural sector. See the questionnaire that the candidates have been asked to fill out.
  • Engage voters on why 'Arts Matter’ and why arts, culture and creativity are an important issue in this year’s campaign. Sign up here and recruit five of your friends to tell the candidates that ‘Arts Matter’
  • 'Artsdog' the candidates to engage them in discussion in person and through social media about their platforms. Be on the lookout when the candidates come to your city or town and makes sure you ask them a question about arts, culture and/or creativity.

Creative Collaborative Conference on the Cape

More than 200 arts, cultural and creative leaders gathered in Hyannis on March 24 to learn, advocate, and celebrate the creative sector on the Cape. The fourth annual Cape Creative Collaborative conference brought together leaders and supporters of the community from Falmouth to Provincetown and was an inspiring testament to the strength of the arts and cultural community.

MASSCreative Director Matt Wilson addressed the crowd and urged them to engage in the Create the Vote campaign by setting up meetings with candidates and encouraging their own audiences to participate in the campaign.
