Berkshire Cultural Resource Center
Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts
375 Church Street
The Berkshire Cultural Resource Center--a collaborative project of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA), Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) and the City of North Adams--provides the regional arts community training, resources, access, and marketing support to artists, arts managers, arts scholars, and arts-related entrepreneurs. The center, formed in spring 2006, is hosting a series of instructional workshops in nonprofit management with an arts focus, delivered by leaders and working professionals from the arts-rich Berkshire region. The center administers the Berkshire Hills Internship Program (B-HIP), an innovative program for early career arts managers that connects them with professional experience, training, mentorship and supervision delivered by established professionals. The center also serves as a clearinghouse of information for working artists about resources available in the community, from materials to studio space to exhibition venues to social marketing.
