Event description

Join us this June for the Art of Mass Gatherings in Boston and start supercharging your community's resilience! 

This hands-on learning and networking event is free to attend for event organizers, artists, emergency professionals, and anyone else who hosts large gatherings of people. 

You'll leave with concrete practices, resources, and new connections to help enhance the safety, sustainability, accessibility, and community engagement of your events, all while building sought-after cross-sectional skills to help improve community health outcomes and emergency preparedness. 

This event is part of the nationally touring Art of Mass Gatherings program by Majestic Collaborations and Performing Arts Readiness, brought to Boston in partnership with Boston Arts Music and Soul Festival (BAMS Fest) and the Boston Office of Emergency Management

Join us at either or both of two all-day events:

Thursday at BAMS CONX (David Friend Recital Hall)

You'll hear from our lineup of incredible local and national luminaries about their experiences and successful practices across the four pillars of the art of mass gatherings: safety, accessibility, sustainability, and community engagement. Don't miss our hands-on community asset mapping workshop, which will map the landscape of arts and cultural event resilience in the city for ongoing use by event and emergency professionals alike. Detailed program schedule is coming soon!

Enjoy a relaxed lunch from Boston culinary success story Rhythm N Wraps plus Topo Chico and Guayaki Yerba Mate, with plenty of time to get to know your fellow participants. 

Several sensory and physical accessibility accommodations are available by advance request. Thursday's event is more of a presentation format where participants will be seated indoors. 

Saturday at BAMS Fest (Franklin Park)

We'll use BAMS Festival as a hands-on classroom for learning how to enhance the safety, safety, accessibility, sustainability, and community engagement of events. Local experts will lead a variety of interactive site tours and hands-on workshops, and participants are invited to share their own experience and expertise throughout the day. Detailed program schedule is coming soon!

                                       Lunch and morning coffee are included.

Several sensory and physical accessibility accommodations are available by advance request. This event does involve significant amounts of time outdoors including moving around the site. A covered tent with chairs and water refill station are available throughout the day. There is a wheelchair-accessible portable restroom on the festival grounds. The festival itself begins at noon, so for about half of the day you may be nearby large crowds, with a lot of sensory stimuli including amplified music, smells, and stage lights.


We are committed to making this event as accessible as possible to anyone who would like to participate. Learn more about the accessibility considerations and features at each event/location

Several sensory and physical accessibility accommodations are available by advance request. For the greatest likelihood that we can meet your needs, please make any accommodation requests by Juneteenth, Monday, June 19th. You can make requests via the registration form or e-mail
