Description

This is an evening of arts and culture in Boston Harbor, making connections across cultures and communities and celebrating the many forms of artistic expression along the many waterways that flow into the Harbor.

This free boat ride will feature music, performance, poetry, and participatory visual art, showcasing intergenerational and diverse expressions. Meet the Boston Harbor Artists in Residence and learn about their projects, and an all-star lineup of poets, visual artists, musicians, and dancers.

  • Cornell Coley: Afro-Latin percussion

  • Veronica Robles: Mariachi and traditional latin dance

  • Matt Parker: poetry

  • Ashley Rose: poetry

  • April Andrew: visual art in collaboration with youth, inspired by The Negro Speaks of Rivers by Langston Hughes
