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!

Montague Cultural Council

The welcoming and enthusiastic arts community in Turners Falls inspired Jen Audley to put down roots in Franklin County a decade ago. She came to Western Mass from Cambridge, where she'd organized neighborhood block parties, pursued interests in art-making and local history, and helped produce aspects of the Boston Cyberarts Festival. In Montague she's put those skills to use as a participant and volunteer organizer of numerous community events, a member of the Turners Falls RiverCulture steering committee, and a member of the town's Local Cultural Council.
