Bartlett Yard, is Roxbury's newest destination for arts, culture, and community. Bartlett Yard is the site of the former MBTA Bartlett Bus Yard and the future home of Bartlett Place, a major new residential and retail development in Roxbury.  The total site area is approximately 8.6 acres.  The northern half of the site is presently leased to a construction company.  This leaves approximately 3 acres of open outdoor space in a unique "puzzle-piece" configuration.  Far from being limiting, the uniqueness of this space opens the door for many types of events.  Bartlett Yard is the home of a variety of art, retail, and special events hosted by Alliger Arts, Nuestra Communidad, Windale Development Corporation, and a variety of community non-profit partners.

This series of events is being organized by Jason Turgeon, a resident of the Highland Park neighborhood, known for organizing the annual FIGMENT Boston art event on the Rose Kennedy Greenway and writing the hyper-local Fort Hill History blog. He is working in collaboration with Jeremy Alliger of Alliger Arts, a stalwart of Boston's art and dance scenes and has organized events at nearby venues including Hibernian Hall and Mark Paulo Ramos Matel, a Rose Fellow, a native of Virginia and most recently lived in Alabama and New Orleans. Mark has a background in design/architecture and has fabricated object of beauty ranging from furniture to street art. They are working with site development team Nuestra Communidad/Windale Development Inc.,
