BOSTON/North End - This month, the city of Boston invites art lovers to spend a long weekend in the North End experiencing the best of the Boston Arts Scene. Starting Friday, Sept. 11, the annual Boston Arts Festival will return to historic Christopher Columbus Park for a three-day celebration of local arts and entertainment. The event will feature work from over 60 visual artists and a number of scheduled musical and dance performances. The outdoor festivities will run each day from noon until 6 p.m.
Arts Event Announcement
From August 26-29, the Boston branch of the National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture (NAMAC) will welcome hundreds of members from arts and media communities nationwide for its biennial national conference at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Founded in 1980, NAMAC is a nonprofit consortium of over 300 media, visual, and interdisciplinary arts organizations serving to support and advocate for the media arts. The conference, titled CommonWealth, will be co-hosted by the Center for Independent Documentary and other local media and arts-related organizations.
For the past decade, the United Teen Equality Center (UTEC) of Lowell has been changing – and sometimes even saving – the lives of the city’s youth, and they want you to know about it. In an effort to share their experiences at UTEC with the Boston community, dozens of the center’s teens will host the Lowell Connector Fundraiser Event on Tuesday, June 30 from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Institute for Contemporary Art.
Poets and writers will be gathered in The Writers Room of Boston to heave a collective sigh of relief and celebration. Among them our own CD Collins will add some funk and groove to this exciting night by debuting her new electronica style with spoken-word and music.
Six new books are being published from The Room this year and this event will showcase them.
