Creative City

The inaugural three years (2015-2018) of the Creative City pilot program supported artists of all disciplines to reimagine places for art in Boston, engage public imagination, and inspire community members to share in civic experiences. With acknowledgement of the Barr Foundation’s funding and thought partnership, NEFA shares the learnings through the Creative City Report and video series featuring the inspiring stories of the pilot program grantee work and the transformative power art can play in civic life.

Creative City Boston’s pilot programming revealed the power and presence of diverse local artist who are committed to creating socially engaged public art. Watch what can happen when Boston area artists are supported to take risks, infuse Boston’s landscape with art, and build relationships with area community organizations at the same time.
