Mission: Newly formed in 2023, the Arts & Culture Initiative is a group of artists, arts and culture leaders, creative businesses, gig workers, and non-arts business leaders who want to connect with the Cape Ann creative community. Our aims include:

  • Promoting connections between businesses and Cape Ann's working artist community, cultural heritage, and creative economy.
  • Disseminating information regarding new opportunities for Chamber of Commerce partnerships for artists and cultural leaders
  • Be inspired to creatively connect with the Chamber and its member businesses.
  • Hear from communities where the arts and business sectors work collaboratively.
