Curious Minds And Creative Adventures
Posted 18 January 2018 12:00 AM by ArtWeek
Despite the cold and snowy days of winter, the ArtWeek team at the Boch Center is just warming up as amazing ArtWeek event applications are starting to stream in from across the state! While the official line-up won’t be announced for a few months, curious minds might be intrigued by the hands-on hand bell rehearsal or the progressive plein air; exploring where history and design intersect in the vintage mobile/tiny home restoration boot camp; or taking workshops taught by experts on community auditions, theater lighting, and stage/sound – all offered in the charming setting of a little-known historic town on the South Coast. The final line-up will featured hundreds of unique events, so sign-up for the ArtWeek newsletter if you want to get the insider-scoop!
Since we can’t announce festival details quite yet, we thought we’d take the opportunity to answer a question that people often ask us: what is the connection between the Boch Center and ArtWeek? In 2013, as the result of a strategic plan goal to “define the Center beyond just the four walls of its historic theaters,” to “lead as a civic and cultural champion,” and to “innovate and collaborate,” the Center launched a community initiative called ArtWeek Boston thanks to funding support from ArtPlace America and the Highland Street Foundation. Five years later, it is expanding statewide (www.artweekma.org) as a “must-see/must-do” festival and is already cited as one of the area’s top annual special events, recognized by Expedia, Forbes, and USA Today. We are so proud to be producing a festival unlike any other in the country that is shining the light on our Creative Commonwealth, from individual artists to world-renowned museums to hidden local gems. So, please join us and our 60+ statewide, regional, and local partners as we get creative from April 27 – May 6!
