Dear Friends,

Thank you for your interest in participating in a Dorchester Cultural District Working Committee.  Councilor Baker and I would like to invite you to join us on Tuesday, April 10, 2102 from 4-6pm for an informational meeting to discuss the creation of a Cultural District or several Districts in Dorchester.

We sincerely apologize for the late notice, as we had some difficulties coordinating schedules.  However, we are looking forward to having Meri Jenkins from the Massachusetts Cultural Council at this information session. She will be presenting information to the group concerning Cultural Districts and answer any questions you may have about the designation process. Currently, we are awaiting confirmation on a location to host the meeting in Dorchester and will send out location information as 
soon as we receive it.

We have included below information about the designation process, Frequently Asked Questions and examples of other Cultural Districts.

We hope you can join us!
