Where do we go from here?

Join Boston-area thinkers, institutions, entrepreneurs, activists, city officials, and artists for a discussion to commemorate the Civil Rights Movement and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. This discussion aligns with themes found in “Monuments to Us,” on view now.

Adrian Walker, columnist

Following the panel, hear from international artist Julia Vogl on People, Places, and the Power of Art, a presentation investigating how social engagement, democratic means of data collection, and wild color can transform places and ignite new connections in community.
