Art, Lectures & Conferences
The Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture invites you to the final celebration of the third year of the City of Boston’s Artists-in-Residence, Boston AIR, on Friday, November 30 at 5:30pm at the BSA Space.
Date: November 30, 2018
Location: BSA Space, 290 Congress Street, Boston, MA 02210
For the past year, seven artists have dedicated themselves to the exploration of City of Boston policies, processes, and practices through a lens of resilience and racial equity. As members of the Boston AIR cohort, artists developed multidisciplinary projects addressing civic concerns, such as environmental racism in climate change response, community activism led by older Bostonians, and gaps in historic narratives in City archives and memorials. Some have worked alongside City subject matter experts and co-designed a program, while others have worked with community centers and other partners to understand municipal policy impact on a personal level. Through Boston AIR, the City of Boston is providing support and structure for artists as engaged citizens, leading thinkers, and change-makers in our community with the belief and trust that artists can and do influence and shape our city.
Refreshments will be served, and the event is free to the public. All ages are welcome!
