HUBweek ups the creative ante with a full-on, Boston-wide multimedia extravaganza.
Flashing lights: Last year’s inaugural HUBweek saw more than 10,000 stop by the preview party for ILLUMINUS, a showcase of contemporary artists who work with light, sound, and projections.
Wait till you hear what HUBweek has in store for Bostonians this year. That’s what founder Linda Henry and her team have promised since the multimedia festival— which focuses on innovation in the arts, science, and technology—blasted on to the scene twelve months ago.
A civic collaboration between the Boston Globe, Harvard University, MIT, and Massachusetts General Hospital, the annual week-long celebration of Boston’s creative and innovation economies is primed to take over the city from September 25 through October 1. Before it does, Henry gives us the lowdown on three can’t-miss events.
“This event features a number of different components—music, yoga, and other stress-busting techniques— aimed at helping individuals reduce anxiety.” September 25 at Yawkey Center lobby, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit St.
“This event will take place right before the first general election debate. Rather than feature panelists this year, we’re turning the mic over to the audience. It’s important to get the public engaged in the conversation.” September 26 at Faneuil Hall, 1 Faneuil Hall Sq.
GlobeDocs Film Festival
“The film festival events feature screenings and post-film panels, which include the filmmakers plus critics and experts, that explore the issues presented in each film. Both the opening and closing evenings feature post-film parties.” Multiple times and locations, including September 25 at Fenway Park
