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!

Artists as Partners

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

That creative hum you hear in the background in every city and town in the Commonwealth? It's an artist at work. Forging partnerships with artists in your community is integral in championing and investing in cultural experiences that enrich people's lives. Equitable partnerships that increase understanding of how to work together, tackle stereotypical thinking, take creative risks and trust that the results will be more than you hoped for.
