Black Boston: Transforming the Arts

Boston is renowned for its arts and theater institutions, which historically have made space for certain kinds of artists and conceptions of art. How is Boston elevating and amplifying new voices and new approaches to the Arts? How are we transforming who gets to make and consume art? Where does bias persist and how do we rectify it?

Join the Boston University Initiative on Cities, Boston University Diversity & Inclusion, and WBUR CitySpace for Black Boston: Transforming the Arts, the fourth in a recurring discussion series featuring transformative Black leaders from across Greater Boston.
