Create the Vote
Arts are an issue that affect everyone in a city, and have the unique capacity to solve social problems - increasing public safety, graduation rates, and pride of place. In Springfield, the arts are a $50M industry, supporting 1,800 full time jobs, and we want our elected officials to have strong views on supporting US!

Old First Church Organ Concert
Old First Church in Springfield’s Court Square is perhaps one of the Downtown’s most recognizable landmarks, but is underutilized for most of the year. The SCP hopes to change that, starting with a pop-up organ concert on an autumnal Sunday afternoon.
