Our Mission

The Springfield Cultural District’s mission is to create and sustain a vibrant cultural area that is rightfully perceived as a premier cultural destination in our state and across the region.

We succeed as a significant force in New England’s economy by supporting Springfield residents, students, institutions and local businesses that contribute to the region’s creative economy.

Our Vision

Our Vision for the Springfield Cultural District is to provide a cultural environment that merges both the historical and contemporary elements of Springfield, into a welcoming and creative experience for residents of the area, as well as visitors from throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the region and beyond. True to the visionary leadership and spirit of the historical icons within our community, we continuously innovate to create an urban space that provides creative experiences that are culturally relevant, aesthetically engaging, and contribute to the economic vitality of the District and the region.
