Art ought to enrich communities, and the Boch Center brings that maxim off stage and into creative social practices. The nonprofit steward of the Wang and Shubert theatres has implemented artist-teacher residencies at Boston Public Schools, produced diverse showcases for local talent (including Tremont Takeover, a genre-spanning inclusive concert) and empowers young creatives through its Teen Leadership Programs. A recent Music Teachers Who Inspire contest awarded grant money and perks. The Boch Center is leading—and educating—by example.
