Save Our Streets-Boston, Inc. (SOS) is hosting the Third Annual Urban Arts Festival. It is a free event to display and encourage the arts within the Boston community and promote positive creative outlets among its youth to prevent violence, all while supporting local Boston artists. From 12pm -6pm there will be family-friendly events including children's games and activities like sack races, dodge ball, painting and more. The Boston police and fire departments have been invited, as well, to speak and run activities for the children.

There will be live performances from Boston locals including some bands, spoken word, dancers and more. Visual artists will also be in attendance, creating canvases and various other art mediums on site. We are collaborating with the Hyde Park Arts Association (HPAA), and they will host their “Battle of the Arts” competition bringing a new educational spin on the art making process. Artists will be creating artwork onsite within a certain time frame. This gives the public the opportunity to witness the process that visual artists’ use. The public will be invited to vote for their favorite. There will be three cash prizes awarded. There will be free giveaways, and raffles will be held for prizes.

The purpose of hosting Boston's Third Urban Arts Festival is to create more opportunities for local artists to connect with their community. This will help to steer Boston's youth toward something positive and constructive.
