Over 600 Arts Leaders and Supporters Attend Arts Matter Advocacy Day!


In the largest gathering of arts supporters in more than a decade, MASSCreative’s Arts Matter Advocacy Day at the Paramount Center and the MA State House on March 28 sent a clear message to our State Senators and Representatives that arts matter. The energy was infectious, and the advocacy, effective.  

Over 600 (we had expected 300) arts and cultural leaders and supporters and young people gathered for a day of networking with old friends and meeting new ones. We honed our advocacy and storytelling skills and traveled through the Boston Common in an ‘Arts Matter March’ to the State House to meet with legislators on arts and cultural issues.

Arts advocates met with more than 100 legislators and staff, telling stories of impact and showing that arts matter in Massachusetts.

Take a look at the Storify or a recap of the day via pics, posts, and musings.

And check out the front-page coverage in The Boston Globe and radio coverage from WBUR and WGBH.
