2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,000

Boston will curate You Can't Kill A Poet, a reading series designed to give voice to Philadelphia's queer and/or trans identified poets and writers. Boston will curate each event to be an exclusive space for queer and/or trans identified readers to share their stories, art, and experiences with the community. Readers will not be asked to meet any requirements, except for the desire to share and participate. All will be welcome to attend and the readings will be free, taking place at Tattooed Mom's and the Free Library of Philadelphia.
