Some big changes are happening at MCG! We celebrated our 4th birthday this past winter and are excited to announce that we are growing more than ever. So far this year we have been able to hire 4 new full-time employees, move to new offices, and receive our own 501C3 status as a nonprofit!
We are growing more than ever and none of this success would have been possible without the YWCA, who has been with us from the very beginning of MCG. Back in 2011, Francey and Lydia hit the ground running with the start of MCG and chose the YWCA as our fiscal agent because of their strong encouragement of our programming. They have gone above and beyond, giving us the support and resources needed to start MCG, including office space and supplies, mentorship, partnership and so much more! The YWCA of Lowell has been the key piece in allowing us to grow into what we are today. We would not be here if it were not for the YWCA and we are so happy to maintain our relationship with them after becoming an independent organization.
In looking to start this exciting new chapter, we have found a new home at the Western Avenue Studios. Instead of being spread out all over Lowell, we are now able to have all of our space needs under one roof. In addition, we now have the room for our continually growing staff. The creative energy here at Western Ave is inspiring to us and we look forward to collaborating with the artists in the future. Stay tuned for an invitation to an open house once we’re all settled it!
We’re so grateful to the Y for their ongoing support and now we’re excited to start this new chapter!
