Mattapan Cultural Arts Development is cultivating an arts-driven network invested in creating space(s) for art to happen in Mattapan, MA.
We are a network built (and building) around collaboration, not competition. While we understand the competitive impulse, we believe it is outdated. Instead we are invested fully in operative models predicated on collaboration.
All to say, we prefer the tangibles derived from collaboration to the fleeting intangibles associated with winning ‘at all costs.’ We want a Mattapan on parity with all other Boston neighborhoods, and we believe we can move us closer to it through the arts.
