Announcing the Cambridge Arts Challenge, March 14 – 31

Twenty-two leading Cambridge arts organizations have teamed together to present the Cambridge Arts Challenge, March 14-31. The Arts Challenge pits companies against one another in a friendly competition to see which team can attend the most arts events during the two week contest. The competition culminates with a celebration to crown the Cambridge Arts Champion sponsored by the art-centric Beat Brasserie in Harvard Square on April 2, 2015.

Will Microsoft Take the Crown?
Team Microsoft competes against teams from the Cambridge offices of Twitter, Google, Facebook and Cambridge Innovation Center in the battle to support the arts in our community. Points are tallied via social media activity using the hashtags #TeamMicrosoft and #ArtsChallenge.
