Recognized across the Commonwealth since 1986, the Southeastern Massachusetts Arts Collaborative, better known as SMARTS, is a year round non-profit organization dedicated to the arts and creativity. This dynamic multifaceted arts organization provides people of all ages with discipline-based and interdisciplinary training, education and performance experiences.

 To this day SMARTS operates under the aegis of the following convictions: 

  • Considerations of minority status or financial limitation will not preclude participation of any person
  • Collaboration among artists, teachers and agencies serves to elevate and make relevant arts experiences for all
  • Emphasizing process over product ensures the development of skills and confidence that will carry into all aspects of life
  • Young people will have access to art enrichment opportunities locally

SMARTS is funded in part by grants from The Massachusetts Cultural Council and Local cultural councils which are supported by MCC.  Additional funding provided Mansfield Bank Charitable Foundation and North Easton Savings Bank and the Rotary Club of Attleboro
