THE LAB IS...
...a 501(c)(3) non-profit, dedicated to incubating new collaborations on behalf of arts in Greater Boston's public places...its neighborhoods...its communities.
Through our workshops, soon to number 30, and our emerging projects, we continuously poke and probe and ask...
Explore with us. Join us. Put your own creative spin on "what if...?"
Expand the boundaries...your's and our's.
Help us strengthen and broaden this effort - programmatically, organizationally - to contribute to a "shared life" in the city.
WHAT'S INCUBATING AT THE LAB?
Terrific, passionate discussion 11/30 on #PublicArtandHealing: major thanks to New American Public Art, Riverview Chamber Players, Kilombo Novo Indigenous Healing Arts, plus all who participated. Workshop Notes here, as well as some early thoughts about a January follow-up: moving from major concepts into designs for public art.

Images and memories from ArtsCommons @ JP PorchFest 2016
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...community!
