This is James Caviston from seARTs writing to ask a favor. I know you have been running a lot of popular votes and poles recently, but I would like to ask you to put one more in the GMG blog. The Massachusetts Cultural Council funds many arts and educational non-profits in and around Gloucester. They fund the best known institutions like the Cape Ann Museum and the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center.
They also fund the smaller organizations as well. Through past funding to seARTs under the John and Abigail Adams fund, we have been able to partner with the City of Gloucester Committee for the Arts, the Gloucester New Arts Festival, the Cape Ann Artisans and the Rocky Neck Art Colony (the MCC’s support made possible the Captains Courageous Festival that Manny covered so incredibly well). In short the MCC has meaningfully supported Gloucester and the Cape Ann region.
They have put out a poll to find out what residents of the Commonwealth think are the great places in Massachusetts. The goal, like all MCC programs, is to draw attention to Gloucester’s many assets and stimulate the economy through cultural tourism. So I hope everyone who sees this will vote early and often.
Thanks again for offering such a terrific service to the community. Like everyone else, I check GMG first thing everyday.
Where Are the 1,000
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts invites residents from all 351 cities and towns across the state to nominate their favorite places. The nominations will be considered for a final list of 1,000 Great Places in Massachusetts to be announced in May.
The Great Places initiative will celebrate what is unique about the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, its communities, and its people. It also aims to stimulate the economy by boosting visitation to the state’s wide range of exceptional historic sites, cultural venues, and natural landscapes.
