Cambridge Arts Council

Cambridge Arts Council is a city agency that funds, promotes, and presents high-quality, community-based arts programming for the benefit of artists, residents, employees, and visitors in Cambridge, MA. As one of the oldest and most dynamic arts agencies in the country, Cambridge Arts fosters opportunities to recognize, celebrate, and support artists and artmaking reflective of the diverse populations in the city. Operating with funding from local and state government, private foundations, corporate sponsors, and individual donors, Cambridge Arts delivers on its mission by fulfilling three primary roles:

Connector: Through partnerships with artists, presenters, donors and audiences, the agency operates as a vital cultural presence in the region. From connecting local youth with professional teaching artists to securing performance space for both emerging and established ensembles and introducing residents to local artists through Cambridge Open Studios, Cambridge Arts links people and resources from across the artistic spectrum to spark innovative collaboration.

Presenter: In addition to exhibitions and educational programming presented in the Cambridge Arts Space, Cambridge Arts stages high-profile events such as the Cambridge Arts River Festival, a signature city celebration and regional event. The festival features a wide array of music, dance, theater and visual art and attracts a robust audience of close to 200,000 visitors annually.

Funder: Through the Cambridge Arts Grant Program, Cambridge Arts awards dozens of financial grants each year in support of high-quality, community-based art projects representing all artistic disciplines.
