The Department of Play would like to invite you to join us for BOXTOPIA in Codman Square! They'll be building ideas for Boston in 2130 out of hundreds of cardboard boxes! They've had a few workshops in the last few weeks to discover several key themes, and will continue imagining as we construct.  There will be food, music, and a visit from a time traveling Minister of Play from 2130! Please help us spread the word to make this a big, collaboratively built city.  

The following Monday, June 8th, the Minister of Play will be riding the Fairmount train, engaging riders in talking about this future world through a participatory performance. The Minister of Play will be played by actor Vincent Siders. We'll be giving away tickets to the performance during BOXTOPIA on Sunday.


When: Sunday, June 7th


Where: Corner of New England and Colonial Avenue, Dorchester
