One Boston Resilience Project: Community Listening Session

The City of Boston is beginning a citywide community engagement process to envision our collective strength after violence, as illuminated by the Boston Marathon Bombing.

This project is intended to help the City of Boston build connectivity and resilience across the City. The City’s response following the Boston Marathon Bombing shed light on our community’s commitment to supporting our families, friends, and neighbors who have been impacted by violence of all forms. As part of this project, the City is looking for your guidance and has launched a community engagement process that seeks input on the development of a citywide memorial.

“The Boston Marathon bombings significantly impacted the entire City of Boston, as well as many people around the world,” said Mayor Marty Walsh.  “Now, we want to create a process that allows us to come together as a city and reflect on what it means for all Bostonians to be resilient in the face of tragedy and trauma. I look forward to hearing the various voices of Boston documented in this process.”

The City of Boston invites you to participate in an upcoming listening session to share your experiences with healing, remembrance, and resilience. Your feedback will help inform a call-to-artists for the commemorative artwork. Those not interested in sharing their experiences are also welcome to attend.

When: October 21, 5:30 – 7:30 pm 

Where: Boston Architectural College, Beehive Conference Hall, 951 Boylston Street
