A new arts plaza, “Oasis @ Bartlett”, is planned on a 15,000 square foot lot within the Bartlett Station development in the Dudley Square neighborhood of Roxbury. A team of architects, theater designers, acoustical/audio visual engineers, and landscape architects are beginning to design 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 ask you to participate in one of 15 seventy-five minute FOCUS GROUP conversations. The topic: What would make this project a unique and exciting destination for the you and your neighbors? The volunteer Working Team has completed a community survey and focus groups with local artists and arts organizations. NOW WE NEED TO HEAR WHAT OUR AUDIENCES WANT AND NEED.

To sign up, email our Project Consultant, Andrea Kaiser at ccstpg@verizon.net or call her at 781-235-0555 to confirm a seat. For additional information, please visit our website 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 August 1, 2018.
