Thank you all for participating in the Mass Cultural Council Institute – Unleashing the Power of Culture - on March 17th. Five hundred of you came from cities and towns across the state to meet your colleagues, learn from others and understand your importance as an economic driver in your communities. What incredible energy you brought with you and we here at the Mass Cultural Council are so inspired by the work that you are doing day in and day out to weave the Power of Culture into the fabric of your communities. Thank You!

You have ideas, an agenda, and a plan. Now you need to focus on how this work becomes a visible part of your communities’ everyday experience, not just for now, but for years to come. What does it take to develop, grow and maintain an arts and cultural agenda over time? Hear from people doing this work who believe in the remarkable community social and economic benefits of arts and culture. This session gets to the heart of sustaining an arts agenda, and will help you think more tactically and broadly about who to collaborate with in your community to achieve your goals.
