    Boston Creates: A Blueprint for Arts & Culture in the City

    We've just kicked off a 15 month creative planning process called Boston Creates that will provide an opportunity for our many communities and neighborhoods to share their thoughts on our most important cultural assets. We are looking for volunteers to participate in our community engagement teams and to be part of the leadership council, helping to advise, guide, and drive participation in the process.
