Breathe Life Together Block Party

Due to extenuating circumstances, the Greenway Conservancy and co-curators Chez Vous/Boston Swerve and AfroDesia City have rescheduled the Breathe Life Together Block Party to Saturday, June 25, from 2p to 8p, instead of the originally scheduled date of Saturday, June 4.

Free and open to all, this event will feature a pop-up roller rink, free skate rentals, live music, performances, DJs, painting, and food trucks to celebrate and activate Rob “ProBlak” Gibbs’ mural Breathe Life Together. Together, we aim to cultivate an accessible, collective public space of joy, care, sustenance, and belonging that centers and supports diverse communities, families, and youth from across Boston.
