Local Arts Indicators For An Equitable Recovery in the Region
To help municipalities chart a path to response and recovery for local arts and cultural organizations, MAPC is working with four communities to document the impact of COVID-19 on:
- artists, arts and culture organizations, and creative enterprises
- events, programming, and activities that make arts and culture a foundation of civic life and social cohesion
MAPC is working with Arlington, Boston, Beverly, and Franklin to identify and amplify response strategies in their local arts and culture communities. Through the course of this project, we will also collect data to measure the impact of COVID-19, and use that baseline data to establish metrics and tools to regularly assess the municipalities' arts and culture sectors.
Take the Survey!
If you are a creative worker or cultural organization in Arlington, Beverly, Boston, or Franklin, take this survey to help us understand the state of the arts & culture sector.
