Each Friday, Epicenter features a special “where to be” post on their blog to make sure every day of the week has some sort of cultural event to check out. We hope that you all can come out into the community, learn, and commemorate some influential people and events around Boston! Have something coming up that you’d like to see here? Tweet us @epicentercomand follow the hashtag #WhereToBe.
Join us for Boston’s first Write-in!
Much like sit-ins, where people take up public space to protest and make the case for change, the Boston Write-In will bring together people of all backgrounds for an afternoon of writing and storytelling in support of recent immigrants and refugees. Sharing stories is a uniquely powerful way to see and feel from different perspectives, to build empathy and connection — and stories from those who have been marginalized and who are under attack are crucially important to ensure safety and dignity for all people.
Where: Steps of the Boston Public Library in Copley Square, Boston MA

“StageSource is pleased to be working with the Mass Cultural Council for this May 22 roundtable for Artists working at the intersection of Theater and Disability.
Whatever passion drives a person to become an Artist, this passion can be nurtured through school, after-school, community and professional groups. To develop the skills of the Theater Artist; whether onstage or backstage; whether as a professional, a student, or a dabbler; whether performing, designing, or writing; how do we act on the promise of the Arts to embrace our variety and intentionally anticipate and reasonably accommodate across physical, communication, and/or social differences? Who takes stage?
What are the pathways for emerging artists?”
