MAPC Ride Series – Minuteman to Bruce Freeman to Assabet Trail Connections @ West Concord Commuter Rail Station
Aug 16 @ 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Meeting at West Concord commuter rail station at 3pm

The Minuteman, Bruce Freeman, and Assabet Trails are close to being built out in this area.  They come close together but do not connect. This ride will scope out potential routes of future trails that can connect these.  The ride will be a loop taking in a newly completed section of the Bruce Freeman and well as Assabet Rail Trails. There is about a mile of wide packed dirt trail, so 32mm+ tires recommended.

Leaders – David Loutzenheiser and Jeff Collins

On this Land: Reframing Public Memory @ Zoom
Sep 22 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

How do monuments and memorials shape our understanding of place—and what we choose to forget? And how might we reframe public memory to address the harmful legacy of colonialism in our region? This artist panel will consider how remembering and forgetting of Indigenous peoples and colonial history shaped the landscape and collective consciousness of Greater Boston—and the necessary role of Indigenous artists in shaping more just public spaces.

Future Histories: The Case for Creative Commemoration @ Zoom
Sep 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Reclaim? Recontextualize? Relocate? Remove? What should we do with monuments that no longer reflect our shared history and collective values (or never did to begin with)? This conversation among artists, designers, and educators will explore how creative commemoration can help us see the past and present in a new light—and chart a path toward more just futures.
