Join The Boston Foundation in a conversation about Boston's evolving public realm!


Part of Boston Design Week

Throughout Boston's neighborhoods, parks and playgrounds, harborfronts and streetscapes, cultural districts and community murals weave together the social fabric of the city. Amid the current building boom, these places are serving an increasingly vital role as accessible, democratic, and inclusive common ground for all Bostonians. How are these public spaces designed? Who is responsible for their upkeep and programming? And what are the latest plans for new, culturally vibrant and socially diverse public places? In a lively, cross-sector conversation, find out more about our shared public realm from civic and cultural leaders. 

Join us for a panel discussion and stay for the reception to follow. 
Panel at 4:30 p.m. with reception to follow
