The Boston Arts Academy (BAA) is the city’s first and only high school for the visual and performing arts. It was founded on the conviction that academics and the arts are equally important to student development and achievement. This is the second year of this event and the first year was a huge success attracting almost 350 people at Hard Rock Cafe in Faneuil Hall.
The events purpose is to generate awareness of Boston's creative talent and bring people of the community together. My goal is to help create an environment in the city that encourages our youth to pursue their dreams and express their passion for the arts.
There will be a sneak peek screening of the short film LISTEN that written and directed by local filmmaker and Emerson College graduate Jae Williams that touches on the notion of racial identity, communication, and adolescent struggles.
