A newly formed group promoting the arts in Newburyport recently launched a website to help with its outreach to the community.
The Newburyport Arts Collective was established earlier this year to enable local arts and cultural organizations to collaborate in combating the negative impacts many have experienced from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Organizers said the new website, newburyportartscollective.org, is intended as a resource for residents and visitors searching for theater, music, dance, visual arts, and related events in Newburyport, helping position the city as a “go to” destination for arts and culture.
Member organizations are currently working together to promote a dozen Halloween-related events in Newburyport, and the website provides a listing of them, along with a self-guided map to help users enjoy a “spooky weekend” in the city.
Collective members have also begun regular meetings with city leaders to discuss ways to enhance support for the arts, and are exploring other ways their organizations might collaborate.
