Designing Boston: Boston Creates

After a year of extensive community conversations, “Boston Creates”—the City’s first cultural plan—is in its final draft, heading for completion early summer.  What are key highlights of the plan so far, what has the City learned through this process, and where is it aiming to go? Join us in a discussion as we dive into the vision proposed by Boston Creates and explore the role of cultural planning in shaping the future of cities.
