Event Details

A lot has been going on behind the scenes in Awesometonia, and we’re ready to let the proverbial cats out of the imaginary bag. Boston has a lot of awesome. So much so that the response to our recent trustee search was insane - in a good way. We’re now a legion of 23 with a few area university and high school chapters in the works.

So, what does this mean for @awesomebos? Dunno. It could end up in any number of iterations: one big pile of awesome, topical chapters, or Sharks vs. Jets split. (If it’s the latter, look out for fab dance numbers and moving original ballads.)

Here's what we do know: we're giving out 2X as much $ and that's something to CELEBRATE! Join us at MassChallenge to meet the new members & hear four recent fellows talk about their projects. It’s an impressive line-up. 

  • ‘Tobin School Mural’
    Internationally renowned Boston artist, Caleb Neelon took what was once a bleak, blank wall and turned it into a colorful beacon of creativity for elementary school students in Mission Hill.
     
  • ‘Cronicas de Heroes’
    During periods of civil unrest and social disorder, the focus on chaos in media coverage is often at the expense of community morale. Guerra reignites civic pride by mapping and publicizing the good deeds of every day citizens.
     
  • ‘On the Go - International Outhouse Museum’
    Performance artist, Jay Critchley, is on a mission to save soon-to-be demolished historic outhouses and turn them into a travelling exhibit aimed at sparking discussion about the collective effect consumption habits have on the environment.

Keep your eye on our blog in the week leading up to the event for more info about our fellows and new members!

Organizer

@awesomebos

The Awesome Foundation provides no-strings-attached $1,000 awards to people forwarding the interest of awesome in the world. Established in July 2009, it began with ten friends in Boston pooling $100 from each micro-trustee's own pocket to comprise monthly 'grants'.

The idea caught on and has since evolved into an ever-growing network of autonomous self-organized chapters organized around geographic areas or topics of interest. Chapters have sprung up globally to conserve, sustain, and support the worldwide ecosystem of awesomeness. Projects have included efforts in a wide range of areas including technology, arts, social good, and beyond.
