Allston-Brighton Arts, Culture, and Placekeeping Report: Key findings and next steps

Join us to learn about the key findings of the report and participate in a discussion about next steps.

The Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture commissioned CivicMoxie to conduct an Allston-Brighton Arts, Culture and Placekeeping Report, which takes stock of the cultural environment to understand what exists, what is treasured, and what contributes to the unique characteristics of Allston-Brighton. This baseline is meant as a placekeeping* tool – a way to understand what may be under threat and to identify ways to protect and nurture these assets in recognition of the contributions of the culture community. Join us to learn about the key findings of the report and participate in a discussion about next steps.

The group mixes in original tunes with a wide variety of cover songs spanning any music lover’s catalog.

Boston Artists-in-Residence: Artistic practice, civic outrage, and strategic change

The Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture invites you to a virtual event and conversation with the Boston Artists-in-Residence (AIR) cohort, moderated by WBUR's Cristela Guerra.

For 15 months, five Boston artists have been working inside the very systems they want to change, addressing social justice issues and community needs. As restrictions fell into place and inequities were compounded by COVID-19, artists and their City partners shifted to a virtual setting and explored what their practices and civil service meant in this new landscape.

Hear from the artists and City partners as they reflect on their residencies during an unprecedented year of civil outrage in the arts and beyond at this virtual panel discussion on July 15 from 7 - 9 p.m. The event will be held on Zoom and also livestreamed to the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture Facebook page.
