The Arts Factor: A Model of Collaboration
VITALITY: Our arts and cultural sector is essential to Greater Boston’s economic vitality and to the vibrancy of its neighborhoods. The money spent by arts attendees in support of local businesses beyond the admission price for an arts event in addition to the money infused into the local economy by Boston’s cultural organizations make the sector essential to Greater Boston’s vitality.
When the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA opened 10 years ago in Boston’s South End, it was the city’s first newly constructed theater since the 1920s. This project — a partnership of the Huntington Theatre Company, Boston Center for the Arts, City of Boston, and commercial developer The Druker Company — remains the epitome of multi-sector collaboration.
The Calderwood Pavilion has hosted thousands of performances and events by more than 90 different organizations in its traditional proscenium stage, black box theater, and rehearsal studios. In addition to having a positive impact on the Boston arts scene, the Calderwood has helped catalyze the development of the South End into one of Boston’s most desirable and dynamic neighborhoods.
