What we do

BostonAPP/Lab, a 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to incubating new collaborations on behalf of arts in Greater Boston's public places.

Through our workshops, now numbering 27, and emerging projects, we are constantly looking to answer: 

Who is the public? What is the art? What do we have? What do we need? How are we going to get it? 

Explore with us. Join us. Support us.

Help us expand the definition of we.

JP PorchFest, BostonAPP/Lab, ArtsCommons: together at last!  On and right next to the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral -- the center of JP's "Little Havana" -- the Lab made unique use of shipping pallets to create performance/art-making spaces. Included were two groups: Code Listen organized by Shaw Pong Liu, a Boston Artist-in-Residence, and IN-SIGHT Boston, Con Moto, organized by Rashin Fahandej, a documentary film-maker affiliated with MIT's Open Doc Lab. In addition, LMerchie Frazier, another Boston Artist-in-Residence, organized a "PowerUp Collage" participatory event engaging members of the community in creating small, three-dimensional works focused on...commumity!
