The Fenway Alliance, a consortium of 21 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 is a founding member of the MMOC - the Maintenance and Management Oversight Committee of the Muddy River Restoration project, now in Phase 2.
Since spring of 2020, Fenway Cares has been a collaborative, community-driven effort, formed to provide support and resources to Fenway residents in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
