On May 18, Mass. Governor Charlie Baker will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Mass Cultural Council’s Cultural Facilities Fund at the Seamen’s Bethel and Mariner’s Home in New Bedford. The MCC helps cultural organisations update their facilities, which is a critical role to help so many arts and cultural buildings maintain their historic significance. And help those with with less historic but equally valuable cultural significance, for that matter.
That’s why the MassCreative advocacy organization is organising a tribute to the Mass Cultural Facilities Fund. Today, I joined that #ArtsMatter campaign with a selfie in front of the Brattle Theatre, a vital Harvard Square institution that celebrates film and that I’m a former board member of. And it’s not a current MCC grant recipient, at least that I’m aware of, but I still support the fund. Keep keepin’ it reel, Brattle Theatre.
