Worcester Cultural Coalition


What is the Worcester Cultural Coalition?

The Worcester Cultural Coalition is the unified voice of Worcester's cultural community whose members are the leaders of the City's sixty-plus arts and cultural institutions and organizations.

The Cultural Coalition was formed in 1999 in partnership with the City of Worcester, Worcester Cultural Commission, Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, Colleges of Worcester Consortium, and Worcester County Convention & Visitors Bureau, to ensure that arts and culture play a vital role in Worcester's planning and development efforts.

Mission & Goals

The Cultural Coalition's mission is to "draw on Worcester's rich and diverse cultural assets to foster economic revitalization and create a strong cultural identity for the City of Worcester."

The Goals are to:

  • Establish culture as a highly visible element of the region's identity.
  • Foster live/work/retail space, studios and new arts facilities in available properties throughout Worcester.
  • Build a strong, diverse base of support for cultural economic development among community, political, cultural, educational and business leaders.
  • Build a strong, vibrant Cultural Coalition that contributes to the success of its member organizations.
