HERE'S THE BIG QUESTION:
WHAT CAN WE DO TOGETHER THAT WE CAN'T DO SEPARATELY?
THE LAB'S MISSION
From its inception in January 2013 as a committee within the Boston Society of Architects, and, since June 2016, as a nonprofit, BostonAPP/Lab’s mission has been to serve as an incubator for new collaborations on behalf of arts throughout Greater Boston’s public places. Working within and across public, private, and non-profit sectors, and at a variety of scales, these collaborations are shaped and propelled by an inclusive vision that continues to emphasize civic engagement as critical to bringing this mission to life.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
We host issue-and-action focused open Workshops, informed by the interplay of the art, the public, and the place. The Workshops seek to provide a forum in which to poke and probe for new, robust, and dynamic collaborations that strengthen and sustain arts in Greater Boston’s public places.
Through the ArtsCommons project, we seek to provide a platform and "connection point," to further these collaborations throughout Greater Boston's neighborhoods, and with the participation of communities and artists.
