In April 2015, over 120 artists and organizations gathered at the Arts and Culture Summit organized by Mayor Rivera's office and the Arts and Culture Transition Committee (ACTC).  The goal was to come together as a community to appreciate each other, and find ways to collaborate to make each artist and organization more successful to the benefit of the citizens of Lawrence, MA.  This website is just one outcome we hope will increase awareness of the rich artist resources that reside within the city of Lawrence.
