Peabody Cultural Collaborative earns nonprofit status

Continue reading below

The Peabody Cultural Collaborative recently secured its status as a nonprofit organization. In another step forward, the collaborative held its first fund-raiser, an Oct. 4 event at City Hall that featured performances by Roomful of Blues and the Peabody Veterans Memorial High School jazz band. More than 300 tickets were sold for the event. Begun in 2010 and incorporated last year, the collaborative includes the city and numerous local cultural and arts organizations. Its mission is to promote and celebrate the city’s cultural offerings, and to educate and engage local residents about them. Karen Sawyer, the city’s director of community development and planning, is president of the organization’s board. Meanwhile, the collaborative recently started Painter’s Pub, a program in which participants meet the third Wednesday of each month to paint and sip wine. Meetings are held at the ArcWorks Community Arts Center, 22 Foster St. Admission is $40 and covers supplies and two glasses of wine. The proceeds help support the Peabody Cultural Collaborative. The next Painter’s Pub meeting is Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. For more information, go to www.peabodyculturalcollaborative.org or call Sawyer at 978-538-5770.
