Throughout the spring of 2023, Cultural Ambassadors hosted 30 conversations with interest groups (i.e. music, dance, literary arts) and identity groups (BIPOC, Immigrants, etc.) to explore how best to expand Somerville's cultural capacity. At the Forum, you can learn about the community conversations and add your insights.
