Did You Know?

  • 92 percent favor state funding for arts programs in schools.
  • 87 percent say nonprofit cultural organizations are important to the quality of life of their communities.
  • 84 percent favor state funding to support public programs of cultural organizations.
MCC Background

The Massachusetts Cultural Council's mission is to promote excellence, access, education, and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences, in order to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.

MCC was formed in 1990 through the merger of two separate agencies, the Massachusetts Council on the Arts and Humanities and the Massachusetts Arts Lottery Council.
