Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek has become an annual award-winning innovative festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. Launched in 2013 and produced by the Boch Center as part of a strategy to strengthen its role in both the community and the creative economy beyond just its downtown historic theaters, ArtWeek’s growth has been explosive.  

Designed to drive neighborhood economic impact and build awareness of the area’s creative economy, ArtWeek is proud to partner with the Mass Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism as its Lead Champions as well as the hundreds of community partners it works with throughout Massachusetts.” ArtWeek also has a network of generous media partners each year that have contributed $2.2 million in advertising and promotional support since its launch, and has received recognition from The Boston Globe, BostInno, the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network, and Americans for the Arts.

The next ArtWeek festival will occur from April 26 - May 5, 2019.
