New City cultural plan to launch in JP

The City is crafting a new cultural master plan called “Boston Creates” and kicking off the process with a June 2 meeting at Jamaica Plain’s English High School.

The latest of several master plans announced by Mayor Martin Walsh’s administration, Boston Creates will be a “cultural blueprint,” according to the City. The exact details are unclear, but it appears the 12-month process will both document existing resources and suggest new arts and cultural opportunities.

“Boston Creates is an opportunity for everyone in the city to share their vision of how arts and culture fit into our future,” said Mayor Martin Walsh in the press release. “We encourage everyone to come to the town hall to help us build upon the cultural assets of our City, and be a part of the plan that will position Boston as a municipal arts leader.”

The City aims to hold community meetings through September; produce a draft plan in the winter; and have a final plan in place a year from now.

The process also involves “community teams” to act as “ambassadors” and host local meetings.

The June 2 meeting runs 6 to 9 p.m. at English High, 144 McBride St. The City is asking people who want to attend to register online at For more information, see
