The Village Bank supports NCA plans to stimulate economy via culture
Kenneth C. Brennan, president and CEO of The Village Bank, announced today that the Bank has made a $15,000 commitment over three years in support of a “cultural tourism” initiative planned by the Newton Cultural Alliance (NCA) as a way to help stimulate local economic growth.
The Newton Cultural Allliance is proud to announce the launch of its newly revamped web site! As its main marketing tool, it provides our member organizations with additional opportunities for online exposure and event promotion. The site highlights a detailed Calendar of Events in Newton, made possible through a recent partnership with ArtsBoston. It also serves as an essential medium to attract new members, partners and to enlighten the community on the NCA's mission.
Two members of the NCA's Board of Directors: Thomas Concannon and Victoria Danberg, participated in the event "Connecting Creative Communities" hosted by the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) and the City of Providence Department of Art, Culture & Tourism. This event brought together active leaders from the New England area, providing them with engaging presentations on the potential, strategic development and promotion of the creative sector within local communities.

The NCA's Membership Program has grown to include ten non-profit organizations: Boston Ballet School, Cappella CLAUSURA, Highland Glee Club, Historic Newton, New Art Center, New Philharmonia Orchestra, Newton Symphony Orchestra, Sharing a New Song, Suzuki School of Newton and Zamir Chorale of Boston. Learn more about our members by visiting their websites.
he NCA received a $3,000 Planning Grant from the highly competitive Adams Arts Program through the Massachusetts Cultural Council. This grant will benefit the Newton Cultural Passport Program intended to develop ways for raising awareness about the City's cultural entities and to establish relationships between the Alliance's member organizations and the business community, in favor of mutual growth and economic progress.
