Advocate for Massachusetts’ Arts, Cultural, and Creative Community

From its world-class institutions to its community-based arts and cultural activities, Massachusetts has one of the most vibrant creative communities in the nation. Despite this, many of our political leaders still consider the arts, cultural, and creative community to be “nice, but not necessary.”

In response, MASSCreative, the statewide arts advocacy organization, was founded in 2012 and is currently supported by 380+ institutional members and 27,000 individual advocates. MASSCreative’s advocacy campaigns bring together the collective voice of the creative community to advocate for the resources and support they need to build healthy, vibrant, and equitable communities.

MASSCreative works to increase public funding for arts and culture, ensure arts education for every child, preserve creative spaces, and make arts, culture, and creativity a prominent issue in all elections in the Commonwealth. 

Join MASSCreative to help build and mobilize our grassroots network of arts leaders and supporters. MASSCreative seeks Arts Advocacy Interns interested in campaign organizing, social media & communications, policy research, and/or fundraising & development.

  • Passion and commitment to the arts, cultural and creative community.
  • Experience as a volunteer in a campaign or campus group advocating for change.
