Read dishy brief updates from downtown, marketing opportunities from MOTT, and trending topics from across the state. The arts scene in Gloucester and Cape Ann has so much going on and sets such a high, high bar for the state. We needed a calendar and GMG did it! Reminder: If organizations want to be featured on the essential GMG calendar and weekly arts round-up, they should email their listings to James Eves! Triple check the calendar before planning any major scheduling dates.

Co-Chair, Bob Whitmarsh, adds a personal touch—
Bob hand delivered the Downtown Gloucester Cultural District required support material (two complete sets) to the Boston offices for the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), the last step in the application process. We hope Gloucester will be the first town in MA with 2 cultural districts and that the DGCD will soon join the other excellent cultural districts on the North Shore !
Please check out the photos of the binders being presented by Bob to Meri Jenkins and Kylie Sullivan of the MCC.
Next steps: The MCC will arrange a site visit and will go over our application in detail before a recommendation can be made to go forward with establishing the DGCD.
Downtown Gloucester Cultural District (DGCD)
Catherine Ryan writes-
The November 13, 2012 CITY COUNCIL vote was UNANIMOUS to endorse the establishment of the proposed Downtown Gloucester Cultural District.
The DGCD coordinating group thanks the Councilors, our City Clerk, and the more than 30 partners and stakeholders who sent in letters of support and spoke at the hearing. Have a peek at a few: Cape Ann Museum , the Gloucester Public Schools , and Gorton’s.
Next steps: Send in the application and support materials and wait for word, guidance, and a visit from the Massachusetts Cultural Council!
