ONEin3 presents City Hall after hours
April 28, 2015
On Thursday evening, Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s ONEin3 Council will hostCity Hall After Hours, an evening to invite young professionals to experience a new side of City Hall. The event, which will take place from 7PM – 9PM, is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to activate public spaces and engage with Boston’s young adult population.
Throughout the event, guests will have the opportunity to meet and interact with innovators from City Hall and learn about city-wide initiatives that impact young adults. Representatives from a variety of city departments will be on hand to share information and solicit ideas on current projects, including planning efforts and Boston’s climate action work.
“One-third of Boston’s population is young adults, and it’s critical to engage and involve their voices in the civic conversation,” said Mayor Walsh. “These are the future leaders and decisions makers in our City, and I’m thrilled that the ONEin3 Council is making municipal government accessible in this innovative and thoughtful way.”
The space will be activated with help from the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, which will debut a jukebox activated by tweets, the latest in a series of interventions on the mezzanine of City Hall, including Stairs of Fabulousness from the Public Space Invitational, the introduction of a coffee cart, and #WickedCoolTree.
Guests will enjoy complimentary beverages provided by Boston Brewin.
ONEin3, an initiative to foster civic engagement among Boston’s young adult population, is supported by the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
