Parks As Platform @ Franklin Park (6/11)
For Olmsted Now, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy expands its annual free event series Summer on the Emerald Necklace into a shared resource for cross-neighborhood collaboration and community-generated public events from April through October 2022.
June’s Parks as Platform event this weekend in Franklin Park, happening 6/11/22 from 12 pm – 8 pm! We are thrilled to partner with @bamsfest this Saturday, June 11, and the Conservancy is looking for volunteers to assist at our event table. Enjoy some of Boston’s best artistry while talking with festival-goers about the Emerald Necklace, the Conservancy, and Olmsted Now!
Each month, the Conservancy will collaborate with a site partner to anchor programming with extra support: securing permits, coordinating volunteers, and providing amenities like signage, presentation/performance/convening space, portable utilities and restrooms, food trucks, and more. The goal is to increase park access, amplify partner capacity to welcome expanded audiences, and maximize the impact of diverse public offerings using the parks as a platform.
