Art and Placemaking in Communities of Color

Boston is a city that is emerging as a force for design. But is the design scene as equitable as it could be? What are some strategies to engage underserved communities and people of color? Arts and placemaking provide important entry points into discussions around the role of design in urban neighborhoods.

Join the Mattapan Cultural Arts Development (MCAD), Powerful Pathways Consulting, and the BSA Foundation for an interactive community conversation on arts, design, and placemaking. Through presentations, breakout discussions, and a mini-charrette, attendees will explore how design thinking can be applied in making inclusive communities and demonstrate how one of MCAD’s current projects engages the neighborhood in creative civic activity and advocacy.

This is a program of the Mattapan Cultural Arts Development, Powerful Pathways Consulting, and the BSA Foundation.
