About Us

Mattapan Cultural Arts Development (MCAD) connects, mobilizes, and develops people, spaces, and partnerships to build community through the arts.  MCAD supports development that centers and enhances Mattapan’s character and quality of place, promotes cultural celebrations and the cultivation of local artists, and fosters community engagement in making and experiencing art.

ArtsMattapan is MCAD’s presenting and programmatic arm through which we promote, nurture, and showcase artists, arts organizations, and cultural events in Mattapan.
