Deep Dive: The Northeast Region of Massachusetts—A Special Report from Culture + Community in a Time of Transformation
Slover Linett presented this specialized report focused on the North Shore region of Massachusetts in Spring 2022. Hosted by Mosaic Lowell and the Creative County Initiative, we heard from community practitioners whose work is on the leading edge of the action areas that emerged from the research.

Culture & Community in a Time of Transformation: Focus on MA aims to connect the cultural sector in Massachusetts with the experiences and needs of Massachusetts communities and audiences during the pandemic and beyond. In this report segment, we share highlights of the kinds of change and transformation that residents of Northeast MA want to see in the arts & culture sector, building blocks for a more resilient and relevant sector, and the impacts of online and offline experiences in our cultural lives, among other themes. This research has been generously supported by the Barr Foundation & it builds upon the national Culture & Community in a Time of Transformation study.
Here, we highlight how Northeast Massachusetts residents are similar and different in attitudes, behaviors, and hopes for the arts and culture sector compared to the state as a whole. This research has a robust methodology with more than 8,000 responses collected from MA residents and more than 75,000 responses nationally.
