ArtsBoston is a champion for Greater Boston’s arts and cultural institutions and a collaborative partner for public, private, and nonprofit leaders who seek to engage more deeply with the region’s arts and cultural sector. We gather, analyze, and disseminate data that provides a window into the significance of arts and cultural organizations to the region. We also help those organizations build their audiences and work more productively and effectively.
In the nearly 40 years since our founding, we have become a more powerful voice for our sector and a positive force for the region. We remain committed to our original mission: to enrich the lives of our citizenry by connecting people of every age and background with the arts and cultural organizations that call Greater Boston home.
ArtsBoston has an active membership of 170+ performing and visual arts organizations throughout Greater Boston. For more information on becoming a member of ArtsBoston, click here.
ArtsBoston is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
Programs of ArtsBoston
Our main website, ArtsBoston.org, is a comprehensive online arts, cultural, and entertainment calendar for upcoming performances, exhibits, educational, and free events in Greater Boston. No other resource gives you access to more of the arts you love.
ARTSBOSTON AUDIENCE INITIATIVE
The ArtsBoston Audience Initiative (AAI) is the region’s first resource of actionable audience data.
Representing a sector-wide collaboration of over 60+ arts and cultural organizations, the AAI helps those participating better understand current audiences, while also providing critical contextual insight across the local arts marketplace to help reach new audiences.
