Regional Survey Fuels Recovery Efforts for Local Artists

As our arts community struggles in this difficult time of challenging economic environments due to Covid restrictions and business closings, town officials are working toward finding partnerships and shoring up support to lend a hand.

In partnership with The Metropolitan Area Planning Council, Arlington has joined with Boston, Franklin, and Beverly to document the needs and challenges of local artists and creatives. This work is part of a larger effort to help municipalities chart a path forward in response and recovery for local arts and cultural organizations.

If you are an artist, an arts or cultural organization or business please help Arlington in these efforts by filling out this survey by Monday, February 15. Thank you for sharing your perspective and showing support for our artists now, and in the future.

For more information, please reach out to Ali Carter, Economic Development Coordinator for the Town of Arlington. Email: acarter@town.arlington.ma.us Phone: (781) 316-3095
