Youth lead the BostonCreates conversation


With Boston's Cultural Planning Process in full-swing, youth involved in summer programs at Company One, Hyde Square Task Force, Urbano, and Actors Shakespeare Project came together to make sure that young people have a voice in BostonCreates, the city’s cultural planning process.

The August 12 gathering was facilitated by youth, with small group discussions addressing what young people want the future of arts and culture to look like in their neighborhoods and the City. The young people shared their ideas in creative ways, performing skits and spoken word.

Take the survey:

It’s not too late to share your vision for a creative Boston. The Cultural Planning team needs your voice.
Take the Boston Creates Community Survey to share your vision for the City.

Your insight will help set the agenda for arts and cultural activities and programming, and help identify obstacles and barriers that the arts and cultural community currently faces. The success of the Cultural Planning Process hinges on your participation.
