Tending, Co-building, and Care: Reflections on Radical Imaginations for Racial Justice

Throughout 2021, the 16 artists and collectives who received funding through our Radical Imagination for Racial Justice program have been working on their projects.

Please join us for a virtual conversation with artists, collectives, and co-builders of the Radical Imagination for Racial Justice Boston program. A tapestry of interwoven themes will guide our reflection on bringing to life our visions of racial justice in collaboration with our communities. These themes include: 
  • process,
  • resources,
  • response-ability,
  • "balance",
  • community,
  • wellness,
  • and more.
  • The event is on Wednesday, May 11 from 5-7 p.m. and will be held virtually via Zoom. The meeting room will open at 4:45pm with a gallery tour.
