We are a partnership of independent organizations and stakeholders working to grow the creative economy in Franklin County, MA. We assert that artists and arts-related businesses are Franklin County’s greatest cultural resource, and growing from this assertion, our goals are:
- to increase artists’ capacity to engage in commerce, and thereby foster and grow the creative economy
- to increase cultural tourism to the region
- to promote in the wider community the centrality of art and expression in our lives.
To these ends, we seek collaboration with artists, arts organizations, schools, government, and business leaders and entrepreneurs to extend the creative economy’s impact on the entire region. We undertake this while preserving the integrity of artists and the history and natural beauty of our communities.
