“Global Engagement through the Arts” brings together the missions of two Greater Boston nonprofits: WorldBoston and Artists For Humanity. Have you ever dreamed of being a world famous artist, or just admired art anywhere? This event is the perfect opportunity to for you to take in local art while meeting artists and peers!
Combining WorldBoston’s international networking events with Artists For Humanity’s monthly Open Studios, visitors will connect with globally-minded professionals, tour AFH’s six creative studios, talk with teen artists and designers, and enjoy conversation over wine and cheese! We will kick off the event with a brief, open conversation about what ‘global engagement in the arts’ means.
WorldBoston’s mission is to foster international engagement and global cooperation amongst people of all nations. WorldBoston implements a number of international professional exchanges each year and have a number of events in the city all focused on international topics. Last year, WorldBoston hosted over 800 international visitors. To learn more visit: www.worldboston.org
Artists For Humanity (AFH)’s mission is to provide under-resourced urban youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design. Bridging economic, racial, and social divisions, AFH enriches urban communities by introducing young people's creativity to diverse businesses.
