Neighborhood Arts Online
Digitally streamed performances and workshops in 2020-21 feature a diverse range of Boston's local talent. Digital concerts from Futura Productions in Roslindale and Boston Center for the Arts complement additional performances streamed from artists' homes, while artist residencies engage young people in interactive, online workshops in partnership with Boston City Singers, Boston City-Wide String Academy, Boston Community Leadership Academy, Boston Music Project, Boston String Academy, City Strings United, Mattapan Teen Center, St. Stephen's B-Ready program, and Sumner Elementary, to name just a few.
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.
45+ community organizations collaborate with Celebrity Series to plan and host hundreds of events each season, 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 Dorchester, Hyde Park, Mattapan, Roslindale, Roxbury, and the South End is a core value of Neighborhood Arts.
Partner organizations also receive complimentary tickets to Celebrity Series main stage performances in downtown venues, with over 1,000 tickets distributed to community-based organizations. This program component is on hiatus for 2020-21.
