Worcester Arts District

The Arts District is a public/private project that makes the direct link between art and economic development. It is intended to serve some of the needs of our arts community and revitalize this disinvested area of the City by promoting the reuse of underused and vacant properties for artist live/work space, affordable housing, performance venues, galleries, and other creative commercial and retail enterprises. The successful development of the Arts District and the creation of a major destination point for the region is one of the City's economic development priorities as documented in its current five year strategic plan and is also one of the major goals of the Worcester Cultural Coalition, the unified voice of Worcester's cultural community.

Arts District Master Plan

The Master Plan for the Worcester Arts District presents a variety of recommendations on physical design improvements, cultural and economic development opportunities, in the context of an overall urban design vision for the district. Read more about the master plan.
