A Revolutionary Arts Festival on Bastille Day

Anonymous Marie Antoinette

Occupy Boston will host the Bastille Day Arts Festival on Saturday, July 14 from 1-4pm at Spontaneous Celebrations, 43 Danforth in Jamaica Plain near the Stoney Brook T-Stop off of the Orange Line. The festival will migrate to the SW Corridor Park across from the Stoney Brook Station where a General Assembly will be held at 5pm and festivities will continue. Bring your blanket, a musical instrument, art supplies, your favorite protest signs, and yourself to enjoy food, fun and festivity.

Join us for an afternoon of live music, arts projects, exhibits, and brief histories of the French and Haitian Revolutions and political prisoners. There will be a retrospective of Occupy Boston inspired flyers, banners, photographs, protest signs and public art.

We want to remind the general public that the arts and creativity are crucial for stimulating innovation, new ideas and free thinking in the context of a political movement. We hope to see you all there! And yes, there will be cake 🙂
