Presented every two years by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Commonwealth Awards shine a spotlight on the extraordinary contributions made by the arts, sciences, and humanities to education, economic vitality, and quality of life in communities across the state.
The Commonwealth Awards ceremony is also a chance for the Massachusetts nonprofit cultural sector to come together, assert its value, and make the case for continued public investment. The event is free and open to the public.
The next Commonwealth Awards ceremony will take place in 2017. A call for nominations will be distributed in late 2016.
