A STATEWIDE CREATIVE FESTIVAL FOR ALL
Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek has become an annual award-winning innovative festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. Launched in 2013 by the Boch Center as part of a strategy to strengthen its role in both the community and the creative economy beyond just its downtown historic theaters, ArtWeek’s growth has been explosive.
In May 2017, the Boch Center announced ArtWeek was expanding statewide and launched a new logo, website address (ArtWeekMA.org) with continued support from founding partner Highland Street Foundation. We also announced that the Mass Cultural Council and Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism have become our new Lead Champions. Working with these two statewide partners allowed for the development of regional hubs with an expanding showcase of the Commonwealth’s creative economy. We had an amazing 2019 season, and are looking forward to ArtWeek 2020 (May 1 – May 10).
MEET THE ARTWEEK TEAM
ArtWeek is a community program of the Boch Center, a leading nonprofit performing arts center, and has become a nationally-recognized celebration. With the dedication and commitment of a small but mighty team, ArtWeek would not be possible without the additional creative support of the Boch Center’s Marketing Department, the generosity of the Boch Center’s Boards of Directors and Overseers, and the countless partners and collaborators who provide the creative sparks.
