  1. At a time when the Culture Wars have been revived in Washington, and the Trump Administration has proposed zeroing out funding the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, we need to look to our local leadership to show support for the arts in Massachusetts.
    As we gear up for another budget and legislative season here in the Commonwealth, we’re reminded that democracy starts at home.
    That’s why we invited everyone to channel their arts advocacy energy into MASSCreative’s second Arts Matter Advocacy Day on March 28 to show our state political leaders that arts still matter in Massachusetts.
  2. Leading up to the big day, people were getting pumped and excited about #AMAD17.
