CALLING ALL ARTISTS AND PERFORMERS IN ROXBURY AND BOSTON

A new arts plaza, “Oasis @ Bartlett”, is planned on a 15,000 square foot lot within the new Bartlett Station development in the Dudley Square neighborhood of Roxbury.  A team of architects, theater designers, acoustical/audio visual engineers, and landscape architects will soon be designing the venue which will serve as a park and three-season performing and exhibition pavilion opening in 2020.

In order to guide the design team, we have scheduled 13 seventy-five minute FOCUS GROUP conversations for visual, literary, media and performing artists, arts organizations and arts service providers.  A volunteer Working Team has conducted a community survey and now wishes to engage the arts community to better understand how Oasis @ Bartlett can serve both artists and local audiences.

YOU are invited to participate in one of the Focus Groups that matches your art form!  To sign up, email our Project Consultant, Andrea Kaiser at ccstpg@verizon.net, or call her at 781-235-0555 to confirm a seat.  Each focus group is limited to 10 participants.  For additional information, please visit our website at oasisbartlett.com.  All focus groups will take place at Nuestra Comunidad, 56 Warren Street, Suite 200, Roxbury, MA 02119.  The deadline for reserving a seat is June 21, 2018.

Roxbury artists plan new public plaza at Bartlett Station

Nuestra Comunidad and Windale Developers are excited to announce the launch of a community planning process aimed at designing a new public plaza at the Bartlett Station development in Dudley Square, co-owned by Windale and Nuestra.   We want to hear from you what you want, what works and what doesn’t work.  Our goal is to build the plaza in 2019, based on a vision and design driven by Roxbury residents and stakeholders.

A team of local artists and arts leaders have already begun meeting to create a community engagement plan and start visioning the possibilities for this new 15,000 SF outdoor cultural venue open to the community.  The first step in the public phase is the launching of a community survey designed by the planning team.  Everyone reading this message is encouraged to take the survey and circulate it to your networks.  Here’s the link to the online version:  CLICK HERE.
