Culture + Community in a Time of Transformation: South Coast & South Shore

March 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Culture & Community in a Time of Transformation: Focus on MA is a specialized report authored by Slover Linett Audience Research & commissioned by the Barr Foundation that extends the learnings from the national Culture & Community research through a separate exploration focused on the state of Massachusetts. Today’s meeting is a deep dive into the geographic regions of the South Coast and South Shore of Massachusetts. For more information on the national Culture & Community research conducted in collaboration with LaPlaca Cohen and Yancey Consulting, please visit https://sloverlinett.com/cctt/ And to download the specialized Massachusetts report, please visit https://sloverlinett.com/…/announcing-the-release-of…/ This report offers key findings from the Culture & Community research fielded from April 5 to April 30, 2021 — one year into the Covid-19 pandemic but before the emergence of the Delta & Omicron variants. Guiding questions for this research include: • How could cultural organizations support their communities in MA during such unprecedented times? What kind of changes do people want to see among arts and culture organizations in the future? • How have patterns of engagement with arts and culture shifted in MA? What roles could the arts, creativity, community engagement, and other forms of culture play in the hard work ahead? • To what extent do people believe systemic racism is present in MA arts and culture organizations? • Do MA residents want arts and culture organizations to address social issues in their communities? If so, which ones? This meeting is being co-hosted by the Arts & Culture Partners of New Bedford, a group of individuals and organizations from AHA! New Bedford, New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, New Bedford Seaport Cultural District, and New Bedford Creative. We thank our regional partners for joining us, including the SouthCoast Community Foundation, Co-Creative Center, SouthCoast Spring Arts Festival, Fall River Arts and Culture Coalition, Viva Fall River, One SouthCoast Chamber, Southeastern MA Visitors Bureau.
