Why are we boosting the arts?

The arts and culture sector is a major driver of the Cambridge economy.

The pandemic significantly impacted artists – especially people of color – and arts organizations.

Additionally, the pandemic exacerbated a crisis in housing and studio space for artists


What is CREATE Cambridge?

In 2022 The CREATE Cambridge Coalition applied for and received $500,000 in relief funding for the Arts & Culture Sector.

Starting December 2023 we will have an application process to allocate this money directly to the Cambridge arts, culture, and creative economy sector via a re-granting program.

A portion of the grant will also enable us to employ Cambridge-based artists and creatives to create a multi-media outreach campaign with Cambridge Community Television.
