Boston AIR


“We are excited to have these artists-in-residence on board to help us enhance and integrate our cultural capital into our core city services, for the benefit of all of Boston's residents.” 

- Mayor Walsh

Boston AIR is a way for the City to support our artists as agents of reflection, collaboration, and activism while learning new approaches to familiar challenges in city government. 

As social and civic practitioners, as well as community members, the ten artists are given time to research the needs of the community, deepen their creative practice, and develop a proposal while in residence at Boston Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF). Attending workshops alongside a partnering cohort from ten BCYF community centers and other City agencies, the artists and their City partners learn from each other and presenters in order to develop projects incorporating artistic social practice into government and community work.
