About

We are looking for volunteers to assist with our second event in the Art and the Landscape program-an innovative platform for engaging the community and inspiring conversation. Volunteers will be responsible for assisting with set up and break down, welcoming guests, answering questions, and helping us make sure participants have a meaningful experience.


More about the event:

"A House of My Own" explores the concept of home through a black lens. Home of the black body, home of the black mind, home of the oppression through the walls of a prison cell, and the home found within one’s community and culture. Told by Boston’s concert and educational series dedicated to celebrating black artistry through music, Castle of our Skins weaves together poetry and music by leading black luminaires, both past and present.


The Meeting House is a platform for inspiring new ideas in relation to the intractable structures of racial discrimination and segregation. Based on houses constructed by the first free Africans in Concord (1770’s) the pavilion structure creates an open, transparent framework that points to the future. The Meeting Housewill host a series of public programs, entitled Lyceum 2016, inviting visitors to break out of the narratives that keep us from imaging and producing the equitable social relations that we seek.
