Supporting the Arts in Western Massachusetts and Beyond

Preview: MA Create the Vote Fellowship

A yearlong program, the Create the Vote Fellowship is a learning community for grassroots organizers focused on building advocacy, creating knowledge, and sustaining political power in Massachusetts’ arts and cultural sector. The inaugural class of Fellows is composed of nine artists and cultural leaders from across Massachusetts.

Over the next 11 months, Create the Vote Fellows will develop their grassroots organizing knowledge and strengthen their professional network through sharing, learning, networking, and mentorship. A key feature of the Fellowship will be co-designing a strategy to strengthen and support local and regional networks of arts and cultural advocates. Create the Vote Fellows will also work collaboratively with a broader coalition for arts and cultural advocates in the Commonwealth to engage votes and candidates in the 2022 statewide elections.

The Fellowship hopes that others will join in celebrating the inaugural Create the Vote Fellowship cohorts.

The Create the Vote Fellowship is generously supported by the Barr Foundation.
