what we are all about

As a non-profit public art institution, HarborArts is dedicated to fostering cultural engagement through visual, literary, and performing arts.  We embrace the unique challenge of transforming Boston’s historic, working shipyard into a meaningful space for creativity, discovery, inspiration, and education within East Boston’s economically and ethnically diverse community.  HarborArts is a platform for dialogue, setting the stage for global impact through accessible collaboration and environmental stewardship.

If you can dream it, you can do it.

We’re building a public art incubation environment to host and nurture large-scale art and design projects in Boston– a one-stop shop dedicated to transforming innovative concepts into monumental realities.

Creative and critical thinking empowers and inspires the artist and critic in us all.

HarborArts’ vision is to establish an experiential arts education program here in East Boston founded on our belief that art should be accessible and meaningful to everyone.

We’re changing the way people think about an arts venue.

HarborArts is a unique and creative space for public art, arts programming, and community events.  HarborArts is a place for everyday “Interventions”, both planned and spontaneous, into the artistic life of the city.
