ARTWEEK MA is coming to Western Mass

A  week-long showcase of our "creative side"

ArtWeekMA 2019 is April 26 - May 5

ArtWeek MA is an annual festival that celebrates creativity through unique, hands on experience! First produced in 2013 in Boston by the Boch Center, ArtWeek MA is now gearing up for its second state-wide festival. Hampshire and Franklin County Regional Tourism Councils are proud partners of the event.

We invite you, our partners in all things artistic, to participate in hosting one of these interactive events during this year’s festival (April 26th – May 5th).

ArtWeek asks for unique experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to arts, culture, and the creative economy. Also, MDU Grants are available for free, music learning-based events. Learn more here.

There’s still time to submit your event application for ArtWeek 2019. Visit artweekma.org to apply by February 22, 2019.
