Lots has been going on behind the scenes in Awesometonia, and we’re ready to let the proverbial cats out of the imaginary bag. Boston has a lot of awesome. So much so that the response to our recent trustee search was insane – in a good way. We’re now a legion of 23 with a few area university and high school chapters in the works.
So, what does this mean for @awesomebos? Dunno. It could end up in any number of iterations: one big pile of awesome, topical chapters, or Sharks vs. Jets split. (If it’s the latter, look out for fab dance numbers and moving original ballads.)
Here’s what we do know: we’re giving out 2X as much $ and that’s something to CELEBRATE! Meet the new members & hear four recent fellows talk about their projects.
Join us at MassChallenge on Wednesday, November 16th – 7PM
Here’s the line-up:
- ‘Tobin School Mural’
Internationally renowned Boston artist, Caleb Neelon took what was once a bleak, blank wall and turned it into a colorful beacon of creativity for elementary school students in Mission Hill.
- ‘Cronicas de Heroes’
During periods of civil unrest and social disorder, the focus on chaos in media coverage is often at the expense of community morale. Guerra reignites civic pride by mapping and publicizing the good deeds of every day citizens.
- ‘On the Go – International Outhouse Museum’
Performance artist, Jay Critchley, is on a mission to save soon-to-be demolished historic outhouses and turn them into a travelling exhibit aimed at sparking discussion about the collective effect consumption habits have on the environment.
