WED, APR 1

At the Old SOUTH MEETING House

6PM – 8PM

Whose Stories and Whose Spaces?

How might creative acts of remembering and imagining in public help us reframe the past and present–and see more inclusive futures?

Join the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) for a conversation that explores the power of public art to catalyze critical dialogue around public memory, representation, and belonging, and to transform public life. You’ll hear from artists, curators, and organizers who use creative strategies to reframe public memory and imagine future possibilities for more inclusive, thriving spaces and communities.

This event is FREE and open to the public, however registration is requested. Doors open at 6 PM, and light refreshments will be provided. We encourage everyone to come early and settle in as we plan to begin the program at 6:30 PM.
