History Camp 2016
Spend Saturday with some of the most interesting people in History. History Camp Boston 2016 is an unparalleled opportunity to connect with other history enthusiasts throughout New England and beyond who are passionate and engaged with history. History Camp started in 2014 in Cambridge. The second History Camp was March 2015 at the Harriet Tubman House in Boston and we'll return there for History Camp Boston 2016. The Harriet Tubman House is 5minutes from the Mass Ave T stop and 5 - 10 minutes from covered parking. If you love history, don't miss History Camp. Register now to secure your spot. You'll be right at home. Interested in presenting? Add your topic, session description, name, and links (such as to social media, a personal site or blog, or your institution) to the Boston History Camp wiki. (Note that you must use the Chrome browser to use the wiki, but as you'll see, it's worth it. Very simple to use. Support for other browsers is coming.) Interested in helping organize or get the word out? The same: Read those pages on theBoston History Camp wiki. (Requires the Chrome browser.) If you'd rather e-mail this information, feel free, and we'll add it. More on History Camp Not familiar with History Camp. Start here: This is History Camp. Learn more at HistoryCamp.org. Here's what some of the people who attended earlier History Camps had to say: Excellent sessions, interesting people. Great sessions and panels. I hoped it would be good . . . and it was great. It was a lot of fun. Impressed by the level of interest, taking up all available places in advance. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was great to be surrounded by others who enjoy history. It was really fun! I liked the casual atmosphere a lot, and the size was just right--plenty of cool people to talk to, but not so many that it was overwhelming. I hope it happens again next year. It had the potential of being really disorganized and/or chaotic, but instead it felt like a great communal effort. The presentations were interesting, and felt intimate. Everyone felt like a colleague. There were a lot of different programs on a number of different topics. I liked that it was informal. The topics were great and varied enough that I wouldn't have gotten the breadth of knowledge at any other single event. The breadth and quality of the presentations, and the enthusiasm of the attendees, left a good impression. A note about helping to cover the costs of History Camp History Camp is run by volunteers who believe that fostering an interest in history and supporting historic places and institutions are vitally important. Our goal is just to cover costs; no one is making any money. There are registration and donation options at every level, including for students and volunteers. Money should not keep anyone from attending. Everyone is welcome. We're just hoping those who can will chip in to contribute to cover the costs. What to wear or bring A print out of your registration (or the Eventbrite attendee app on your smartphone) Enthusiasm! Reenactor? Come as you are! Optional Your laptop or tablet--We'll have wi-fi access Something to use to take notes Your preferred badge holder--We've purchased pin-type badge holders. If you'd prefer one with a clip, bring one you received at a previous conference and we'll give you the paper insert with your History Camp information. Getting to History Camp 2016 Registration will open at 8 a.m. and we'll start the 'round room introductions at 9 a.m. We'll wrap up the day with another session that brings us all back together and then pack up so that we're out of the building by 6 p.m. History Camp 2016 is at the Harriet Tubman House at 566 Columbus in Boston at the corner of Massachusetts and Columbus Avenues,a 5 minute walk from the Mass. Avenue T stop on the Orange Line and a 5 - 10 minute walk from two covered parking lots. Via mass transit:Take the T to the Mass Ave. stop on the Orange Line and then walk about a block. (See the map below andthe MBTA's interactive system map.) By car:Parking in the neighborhood is tight. For History Camp 2015 we had scouted out theGainsborough Garage before the event, only to find out that morning that is was full. Thankfully, there was a small garage that was closer that had space. We'll work with the Gainsborough to get a better idea of capacity and schedules for History Camp 2016. In addition, when we get closer to the event, we'll add information on the other nearby garage. From the Gainsborough Garage: When leaving the garage, turn right and follow a flight of stairs that takes you to a walkway over the railroad tracks. It's roughly two long blocks. (See the map below.) The garage is open 24 hours a day and is well-lighted and staffed. It's also expensive for those of us who don't regularly park in Boston(view their rates). One of the alternatives is to park at an outlying station (such as Alewife, where parking is $7 for the day) and take the T in. Using Alewife as an example and calculating in the roundtrip fare on the T, you would save roughly $10 over parking at the Gainsborough Garage and walking. (View the MBTA's interactive system map.)

Commonwealth Chorale presents "Love and Devotion"
Richard St. Clair "Dharma Chant: A Buddhist Oratorio in Three Parts" Date and Time: 21-May-2016 8:00pm Location: Church of the Holy Name 1689 Centre Street West Roxbury, MA 02132 We conclude our season with a world premiere by Boston-area composer Richard St. Clair. Written and revised over a 20-year period, "Dharma Chant: A Buddhist Oratorio in Three Parts" tells the story of a deeply personal search for enlightenment. Based on spiritual texts, including the Buddha's celebrated teachings on lovingkindness, this moving work is both inspiring and uplifting. Weaving vocal lines of counterpoint and canon in a rich tapestry of four-part a cappella, this is an exciting new addition to the choral repertoire and a concert not to be missed.



When: May 21, 2016 8 PM to May 21, 2016 10 PMin West Roxbury, Massachusetts
Cost: 25 - 30 USD (Sat, 21 May 2016 20 )
The EIGHTH ANNUAL Boston SOUPER BOWL
[Please note that this event occurs two weeks after the football event. There are four entry times: 2pm, 3pm, 4pm and 5pm.] On Sunday, February 21st, from 2-6 PM at Haley House Bakery Caf in Roxbury's Dudley Square, more than a dozen chefs will serve soups made from locally sourced ingredients as a fundraiser for Haley House's Soup Kitchen in the South End. This event is the first in a series of events marking Haley House's 50th Anniversary. Upon entering, attendees will select a handcrafted ceramic bowl, courtesy of MassArt's Clay for Change student group. They will then make their way from station to station, sampling delicious soups produced with locally sourced ingredients. In sampling a variety of these soups, people realize that with a little creativity, folks can eat locally all year round. At the end of the event, the attendees are invited to take their handmade bowls home with them. Seven years ago, the Boston Localvores, an informal group interested in supporting the local food movement, approached Haley House Bakery Caf with the concept of a tasting event spotlighting locally sourced soups and "A Souper Bowl" was born. Five years ago, MassArt's Clay for Change student organization proposed a partnership to make bowls for this event, to help support Haley House's 50 year old Soup Kitchen (located in the South End since 1966). For the past several years MassArt's Center for Art and Community Partnerships has collaborated by coordinating community bowl making workshops that add to the richness of the event. Ingredients for the Souper Bowl are sourced from a selection of local farms and purveyors. Iggy's Breads generously donates bread for this occasion. Soups featured in past Souper Bowls include: Butternut Squash & Apple, Cream of Carrot, French Onion, Kambocha Mash, Kale, Pea Tendril, Pork & Bean, Root Vegetable & Lentil, Scotch Broth, Seafood Chowder and Sweet & Spicy Parsnip. About the Souper Bowl Partners: Haley House Soup Kitchen Located at 23 Dartmouth Street in the South End since 1966, Haley House's Soup Kitchen builds community and relationships every week by preparing a nutritious, made-from scratch breakfast for men struggling with homelessness (Sunday-Friday), a sit-down lunch for neighborhood elders living on limited incomes (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays) and a weekly food pantry. The home-cooked, nutritious meals are prepared by volunteers and led by members of a community living upstairs; no one has ever been paid to serve in the soup kitchen. There are no metal detectors or law enforcement officers present, and guests are treated with dignity and care and given refuge from the violence and anonymity of the streets. The personalist focus of the Soup Kitchen offers a broader perspective on the systems that create hunger and poverty, while working to build alternatives to those systems. Donations from the Souper Bowl 8 will support three months of food served in the soup kitchen. Massachusetts College of Art and Design Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) founded in 1873, has a legacy of leadership as the only independent public college of art and design in the country and the nation's first art school to grant a degree. MassArt is dedicated to authentic and mutually beneficial community engagement through public programming, curricular opportunities, and collaborations like Haley House's Souper Bowl. MassArt's artists and designers are committed to making a difference in their local communities and around the world. Center for Art and Community Partnerships (CACP) Center for Art and Community Partnerships (CACP) matches MassArt faculty, students, staff, and alumni who want to complete community-based projects with neighborhood organizations, schools, libraries, and institutions to create mutually beneficial, sustainable partnerships in the visual arts. The Center uses art as a catalyzing force for citizens to act creatively together. Some of CACP's projects emerge as part of course curricula, while others are driven by the needs of the Center's partners. In both cases, CACP works with faculty members and local organizations to match student expertise to needs identified by community members, secure funding as necessary, and provide technical support, coordination, and project evaluation. Clay for Change Clay for Change is a student organization at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. The organization works to build strong connections between MassArt and the wider community through the arts and ceramics in particular. "Empty Bowls" is one of Clay for Change's primary initiatives. About Empty Bowls: Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: handcrafted ceramic bowls are created, guests are invited to enjoy soup within the bowl and for a cash donation they keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity - in this case, Haley House. Haley House Celebrates 50 years! In 2016, Haley House celebrates fifty years of working for social change, beginning with the 8th Annual Souper Bowl and culminating in a gala celebration December 2-4, 2016. Since 1966, Haley House has used food and the power of community to break down barriers between people, revitalize neighborhoods and challenge the status quo. Haley House's mission is to foster health, hope, and economic independence while challenging the root causes of poverty and injustice. Over the course of our 50-year history, Haley House has expanded creatively in response to the needs of those who have come to our doors. Despite our growth, Haley House maintains an intimate sense of community that inspires and supports personal and societal change. We remain deeply rooted in our two Boston neighborhoods: the South End (since 1966) and Roxbury (since 2005).

Beloved by audiences worldwide for the dazzling breadth and variety of its choral movements, this powerful work contains some of Handel's most vivid writing. Through text painting and the masterful interplay of orchestra and chorus, Israel in Egypt brings us frogs and flies, hailstones and fire, not to mention a memorable horse and rider. Few choral works can match the sweep of this 18th century masterpiece. With drama and stillness, despair and triumph, Israel in Egypt has it all. Soloists: Dana Lynne Varga | soprano Vera Savage | mezzo-soprano Matthew Anderson | tenor Bret Aarden | baritone HISTORY & NATURE The Revelations of Divine Love - Carson Cooman Sunday, Mar. 13, 2016 - 3:00pm Performed only twice in Boston, "The Revelations of Divine Love (Metaphors from Sea and Sky)" has delighted audiences across the country and beyond since its premiere in 2009. Based largely on the texts of Julian of Norwich, a 14th c. English female mystic, it evokes a landscape of sea and sky. Filled with atmosphere and color, this remarkable oratorio creates a strong sense of mood and place specifically Nantucket, which provided the composer's inspiration for this large-scale work with orchestra. LOVE & DEVOTION Dharma Chant - Richard St. Clair Saturday, May 21, 2016 8:00pm We conclude our season with a world premiere by Boston-area composer Richard St. Clair.

Convening of UUs Organizing Against the West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline
Join us onSaturday, February 13thto help plan the UU resistance to the construction of the West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline! All people are welcome, whether you are an experienced organizer, are concerned about climate change, or simply don't want a dangerous pipeline in your neighborhood. We will be discussing ways in which UU congregations can support the local resistance to this unwanted pipeline.The pipeline is opposed by most Boston elected officials and nearly all local residents. To gain access to the roadway where the line is being laid, Spectra first sued the city of Boston, then eventually was granted eminent domain authority. This will be the first meeting to organize acoordinatedregional scale UU responseto this pipeline - and eventually other pipelines.
