World Music/CRASHarts

Cambridge, Massachusetts

World Music/CRASHarts curates one-of-a kind, culturally diverse artistic experiences that inspire, challenge, and celebrate creativity and discovery through the performing arts. World Music/CRASHarts provides a platform for both acclaimed and emerging artists from across the globe to share their artistic vision, and offers audiences a contemporary perspective of today’s global society. An ArtsAmplified grant of $600,000 will enable World Music/CRASHarts to focus on bold and adventurous programming that includes commissions of new works, unique artistic and community collaborations, and the establishment of two signature festivals. Enhancement of institutional visibility through rebranding will assist World Music/CRASHarts in repositioning the organization for the future.

“With the continuously changing demographics of greater Boston, World Music/CRASHarts’ mission is more relevant than ever. We provide an inclusive cultural experience that offers a common meeting ground where diverse audiences can share in the richness of music and dance from across the globe. We look forward to participating in ArtsAmplified leadership initiatives to invigorate the cultural landscape of greater Boston.” – Maure Aronson, Executive Director
