ARTIST SUPPORT PROGRAM

In April, 2000, CAI created a partnership with Central Congregational Church (CCC) Arts Ministry in Jamaica Plain, MA, to create an Artist Support Program(ASP). Because of economic trends and gentrification, performing and visual Artists are being pushed out of Boston, and the artists who manage to stay are constantly fighting high overhead costs just to survive. Local artists need moral support and affordable exhibition, performance, social, learning, and spiritual development space.

The Artist Support Program is CAI's project to complement the Arts Ministry at the church to build audience and support for local (Boston area) performing and visual artists by providing space and other types of support for productions and exhibits and social events. Member artists have a place to meet discuss, learn and do something about issues that effect them besides space such as race, gender, equipment and supplies.

In the last year, the ASP has presented 17 performances, 2 group exhibitions, and 2 forums at The Junction - located at 85 Seaverns Ave., Jamaica Plain. There are 80 ASP members, and the membership is growing. To find out more, click here.
