I was invited to be a part of InpUBLIC 2022, a series of public art interventions anchored in spatial justice during the summer of 2022. My role as an InPUBLIC artist and designer involved working with the InPUBLIC team to create a series of banners that would correspond with each InPUBLIC summer event.
The series was created to nurture atmospheres that allow all of us to play, connect, dance, and be in public space. The series culminated in a three-day art festival centered around the theme of PLAY. The events were curated by a multi-racial team of local artists with the intention of centering joy and creative expressions of Black, Indigenous, and people of Color (BIPOC) in the heart of Downtown Boston in partnership with the Design Studio for Social Intervention, NEFA, and the Downtown Boston BID. - Kamaria Carrington.
