HUBweek: Housing>
Oct 10 – Oct 14 all-day
We all need a home. Young professionals, families with kids, empty nesters, seniors, workers, people with disabilities, people struggling to make ends meet – all of us need somewhere to live.
That’s the central theme of Housing>, MAPC’s contribution to Hubweek’s Container Village. Members of MAPC’s Arts & Culture, Digital Services, and Housing teams are transforming a shipping container into an interactive exhibit on the region’s housing crisis. The best part? You can visit for free! The installation is part of “The Hub,” which you can enter with a free general admission pass. Come hear locals’ stories, talk to us about your experiences with housing, and check out other installations from Wednesday, Oct. 10 to Sunday, Oct. 14!

Online Performance: The Medfield Anthology @ Online
Jun 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Medfield Anthology is a site-informed performance piece written by playwright and Metropolitan Area Planning Council Artist-in-Residence Hortense Gerardo.

Featuring local Medfield talent from The Gazebo Players and performances by members of the Boston Dance Theater!

First created as an immersive walking play through the Medfield State Hospital grounds, the play portrays the Medfield State Hospital in its many facets – not only a place where patients went for psychiatric care, but also where community members attended an annual Harvest Ball, young lovers went to movie screenings in the chapel, and youngsters competed in Little League games.

The cast and crew of The Medfield Anthology are excited to present the play in an exciting new online format. Featuring a new scene about the 1918 flu pandemic and a movement piece adapted for viewing on computer screens, the latest version of this play⁠ takes on surprising relevance⁠—as does the history of the site itself.

Followed by a Q&A with Medfield Town Planner Sarah Raposa and Cultural Alliance of Medfield Director Jean Mineo about future plans for the chapel and the rest of the MSH campus
