inPUBLIC: REST


2022

Come outside and take a break from your routine and responsibilities of the day & rest with us at inPUBLIC: REST! Happening the second Wednesday of every month, this event expands across green spaces in Boston and beyond. We invite you to create sacred space for rest: join us to nap, daydream, read a book, listen to our curated soundscape or just simply exist. You deserve a break!

I’m so grateful do the working with the Design Studio for Social Intervention to create a series of summer programs in collaboration with amazing artists and orgs from all over Boston. We provide the blankets, a peaceful soundscape, & quotes to encourage relaxation. Come join us - today and the second Wednesday of every month (weather permitting).




inPUBLIC is co-designed by the Design Studio for Social Intervention and New England Foundation for the Arts, hosted in partnership with the Downtown Boston BID (Business Improvement District), and with generous support from the Barr Foundation.

Sheila Novak is a member of the Design Studio for Social Intervention’s Core Imagination Team for inPUBLIC 2022 along with Crystal Bi, Dzidzor, Jenny Oliver, Joelle Fontaine and Letta Neely.
