Neighborhood School is teaming up with ArtWeek Boston to present:
Party for Tomorrow!
an evening of performance, visual art, and celebration to benefit Neighborhood School
During a time of protests, sit-ins, teach-ins, and political upheaval, it can be easy to get burnt out – and to forget that art is also a crucial component of creating the future we want to see. Join artists from across the metro-Boston area in celebrating the vast potential for art to heal, unite, question, enlighten, and change the course of the future. Let’s party like there is a tomorrow – and we will shape it!
Sunday, April 30, 2017
6:30 – 9:30 pm
Performances begin at 7 pm
The Center for the Arts at the Armory
191 Highland Ave, Somerville MA
Tickets: $25 General Admission, $15 Students and Artists.
Please pay the ticket level that you can afford!

Participatory Visual Art!
– Help create a sculpture with your drawing or writing of a vision or hope for the future. The sculptures will be assembled and given away as door prizes at the end of the night.
– Figure Drawing hosted by the Sherman Street Art Collective: take turns drawing and being drawn by local artists and other party-goers. You may discover a latent talent you didn’t know you had – everyone is welcome, no matter the experience or skill-level! Sherman Street Art Collective believes that there is power in truly taking the time to look at one another, to see and be seen in a deeper way than our every-day interactions allow.
Finish the night out by dancing to the funky and soulful tunes of Johnny Blazes and The Pretty Boys!
Cash bar for wine and beer!
Neighborhood School is a small, independent school in Boston that for 30 years has strived to serve children from a variety of economic and ethnic backgrounds, fostering the next generation of world-changers. At Neighborhood School, we believe that the arts are just as core to a child’s learning as reading and arithmetic. Students are encouraged to find their voice, to recognize injustice and inequality, and to use the strength inherent to their diversity to overcome obstacles together.
Funds raised at the event will go to the Neighborhood School Scholarship Fund, furthering their mission to provide personalized, love-centered education to children from all families of all economic means.
