The Newton Cultural Alliance is a coalition of non-profit cultural organizations whose mission is to promote, sustain and enhance Culture in Newton in service to the community. The NCA has been created to actively promote concepts and ideas of culture and arts for the City of Newton and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The NCA is designed as a resource for the entire community to inspire, educate and bring together audiences and artists to celebrate the arts and enrich the cultural life in Newton. It serves as a gathering place for the community at large and cultivates the creation and continuance of youth programs and opportunities for multi-generational interaction designed to broaden social skills and knowledge in the cultural arts. The NCA assists and supports non- profit organizations that sponsor programs that further these purposes and encourages and promotes culture and arts within the various villages of the City of Newton. The collective efforts of the organizations living, breathing and working as part of the NCA will bring broad and diverse constituencies to the City of Newton. The strength and challenge of the NCA revolve around this collaborative effort of several small non-profit cultural groups. Collectively, the NCA members reach an estimated 60,000 patrons annual for their programs, concerts, festivals and workshops. For more information on the NCA, please visit their website.
