The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has received a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support the implementation of a new arts integration and education initiative for the Berkshire region.

MCLA's fine and performing arts program received the NEA Art Works grant to support the implementation of the C4 Initiative: Creative Compact for Collective Impact, and to provide administrative and communications support for the recently launched Blueprint for Arts Integration and Education.

MCLA is serving as the backbone organization for the C4 Initiative, an arts integration and education program that will employ a regional approach to align the cultural assets of Berkshire County with public schools in 13 mostly rural school districts.
