this website- was launched in October 2007. It is an artist run website and is run by inkind donation of artists' time and resources. This website strives to inform Massachusetts artists of the State House Artist Working Group's and the Massachusetts Artists Leaders Coalition's (MALC) efforts. The site also helps to keep artists informed of Statewide efforts and public policy initiatives that may impact their livelihoods. This site acts a resource and tool for individual artists of all disciplines and strives to follow and inform artists on the State's policy, legislative & regulatory actions. Our goal is to empower individual artists to become more engaged with the democratic process and public policy making.


To be kept up to date on legislation, news, and policy that impacts artists of all disciplines-see the MALC blog
