About the Initiative
As the world continues to change around us, we depend on arts and creativity to help bridge divides, aid in healing and recovery, build understanding, and enable all to find their voice and place in our communities. Through this initiative, the Foundation aims to foster a city where artists and creative entrepreneurs are welcomed and supported, quality projects are replicated or taken to scale, the contributions of our diverse populations are celebrated, and the sector is supported as a key driver of vitality and well-being.
Our work is part of the Barr Foundation's Creative Commonwealth Initiative, a project launched in 2018 that brings together five community foundations from across Massachusetts who recognize the power and importance of arts and creativity in our communities. We are proud to have been selected by Barr to advance this work!
