Engaging Local Artists

Neighborhood Arts artists are a diverse group of 60+ high caliber Boston area performing artists who are experienced in working with young people and committed to community engagement.

Creating Community

45+ community organizations collaborate with Celebrity Series to plan and host 130+ events, with activities tailored to the partners' needs. Our partners include youth arts groups, venues, community centers, Boys & Girls Clubs, faith-based organizations, schools and more.

Activating Neighborhood Spaces

Catalyzing artistic and economic activity in the neighborhoods is a core value of Neighborhood Arts, with events planned in 30 locations within Dorchester, Hyde Park, Mattapan, Roslindale, Roxbury, and the South End.

World-Class Performances

Partner organizations also receive complimentary tickets to Celebrity Series main stage performances in downtown venues, with over 1,000 tickets distributed to residents.

“Watching people smile, sing along, weep, and sway as they listened to the music of Sunday’s concert was very moving to me. We are so grateful that you shared your talent with us!”

Reverend Liz Steinhauser St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, South End
