Investment in our Cultural Spaces

Investment in our Cultural Spaces


From our world-class facilities to our neighborhood arts centers and community playhouses, our cultural venues are often the anchor of a neighborhood, making our cities and towns exceptional places to live, work, play, and visit. To make sure these venues continue to make possible the creation, practice, and presentation of arts and culture, MASSCreative is working to reauthorize and increase the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund.

Created by the Massachusetts Legislature in 2007, the Cultural Facilities Fund has helped restore many of our Commonwealth’s most treasured historical and cultural landmarks, and has helped fund visionary capital projects that revitalize our communities. This year’s Economic Development Bond Bill provides an opportunity to reauthorize the Cultural Facilities Fund for another five years and increase the Fund to $75 million.To build support and momentum for the reauthorization, MASSCreative circulated a letter of support, garnering signatures from 100 mayors, city managers, chambers of commerce, and cultural institutions. This letter was delivered to leadership in the MA Legislature, where movement on the Economic Development Bond Bill is expected this week.
