This program creates an environment that strengthens the economic vitality and health of the district. Creative placekeeping reflects and preserves a place’s identities and cultures, highlighting the uniqueness of Egleston Square. Through collaboration with neighborhood groups, artists, partner organizations, and the City of Boston, we beautify and revitalize the neighborhood’s storefronts, streetscapes, parks and green spaces. Example projects include:

● La Isla: a public pop-up series for creative placekeeping, public health, and economic recovery from COVID-19

Volunteers with expertise, experience or interest in community health; recovery, addiction, and mental illness; homelessness; transportation/ pedestrian safety, and youth and elder issues are especially welcomed.
