CHIEF CHAT: Julie Burros, Chief of Arts & Culture

Moderated by Jen Mergel, Robert L. Beal, Enid L. Beal and Bruce A. Beal Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Join SPARK Boston at Abigail Ogilvy Gallery in the South End for a meet and greet with Julie Burros, Chief of Arts and Culture for the City of Boston, followed by a Q&A moderated by Jen Mergel. 

 As the first Chief of Arts and Culture for Boston in 20 years, Julie Burros has a plan to make arts and culture in Boston stronger, more accessible, more sustainable, and more diverse. Over the past year, she and the Boston Creates team undertook an extensive community engagement process to develop that plan. Now they must promote and execute it, secure resources, and oversee its implementation. 

Bring your questions on the cultural future of our city. We are looking forward to a great crowd and creative exchange! Light refreshments will be served.
