The Fenway Alliance, a consortium of 22 nationally and internationally renowned cultural and academic institutions located in the Fenway, defines the best of arts, culture, education, and research in Boston and beyond. We come together as one entity to create and sustain the Fenway Cultural District, and to provide the highest quality intellectual, social and cultural opportunities for individuals and families throughout the region.
Our collective goal is to enhance the District, creating a 5-mile area in the City of Boston that remains and grows in its uniquely rich academic and cultural offerings, and its beautiful parklands and green spaces.
The Fenway Alliance has expanded the focus of our email newsletter and social media presence to feature Black Artists more prominently and consistently alongside news and updates from our member institutions and community partners. This effort is one small step we make in support of a broader citywide effort to create greater justice and equity in Boston’s arts community and the City at large.
This year we are honoring Theodore "Ted” Landsmark, Professor of Public Policy and Urban Affairs; Director, Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University.
