MassDevelopment Commonwealth Places Challenge

Imagine top-notch musicians, comedians, speakers and events in Dedham performing in a space with modern comfortable theater seating, state of the art lighting, sound and projection systems, balcony seating, shiny floors, and great acoustics!

Our project, was chosen by MassDevelopment’s Commonwealth Places program to challenge our community to raise $50K through crowdfunding by June 28th to transform the old Avery school gym into a first-rate performance center.  If we reach our goal they will donate $50K to our project. This is an all or nothing grant so we must raise all of the $50k in order to receive the match. 

We need YOUR help to realize the vision of creating a beautiful, safe, vibrant and artistic performance center, one befitting the people and honoring the neighborhood. We’ve found fantastic community partners now all we need is YOU!

Your contribution will go directly to:

  • Buy modern comfortable theater seating.
  • Install state-of the-art lighting, sound and projection systems.
  • Refurbish the balcony to create premiere seating.
  • Refinish the auditorium and stage floors. 
  • Install acoustic ceiling and wall panels.

With your help, we can make this dream #MBACCPeformanceCenter #NoMoreEchos a reality.
