Join us this summer in Holyoke MA Fall River MA Lowell MA Lynn MA
4 Cities. 20+ Murals. Endless Collaboration!
From the Caribbean to Cambodia, all here in Massachusetts
June - September 2022
Our itinerary across four Gateway Cities is rooted in cultural programming with incredible talent that celebrates Latinx, Portuguese and Cambodian influences in Massachusetts. We’re collaborating with local, regional, national and international street artists to create meaningful murals and creative interventions in each community. Our goal is to expand the impact of each installation beyond its own locality, connecting passionate coalitions along the way. We hope you’ll join us!
— Our Vision —
Activating Space to Strengthen Communities.
Over the past five years, our street art productions have not only transformed physical landscapes, they’ve ignited social transformation. Artwork from the world’s most established muralists celebrate the cultural roots of the cities we engage. These murals quickly become a visual tool to spark important conversations that can shift perspectives and drive meaningful change. Classroom to the Streets brings these cultural assets into schools and youth programs, with a digital library of creative lesson plans that share the layered impact of each installation.
Impact on the Creative Economy:
Each city is an infusion of hyper-local to wildly-international collaboration, with paid opportunities for regional artists to do what they do best, and to grow with us throughout the process. Our lineup is epic, bringing a circuit of globally recognized talent to Massachusetts. We’ve united government officials, local businesses and community organizations through passionate coalitions to shape the narrative and representation of each production. This summer, 20+ artists will respond to these evocative themes through visual channels in the public realm, collaborating with local businesses and community groups in the process.
