URBAN RENAISSANCE: ALTERNATIVE VISIONS OF A CITY THROUGH STREET ART, CREATIVE ECONOMY & COMMUNITY
Street Theory is a creative agency transforming over 100,000 sq. ft. of Boston’s underutilized walls into a unique urban park and visual playground between Boston's South End and South Boston neighborhoods. Street Theory presents a panel talk-back, DJ, and multi-media installation in Calderwood Hall.
Join the discussion with locally and internationally renowned street-artists, Massachusetts-based mural festival organizers, and city stakeholders on the impact of street art on the urban landscape, communities and the people who live in them.
Panelists will explore the impact of street art and creative economy on urban development and place-making, and the complexity of public art in communities – sustenance and identity vs. gentrification and displacement.
Community Engagement Amplifier Projects at the Gardner highlight change-makers working towards social justice through the arts.
