We've got some awesome special #events set for this month, including our first gallery night and our first community gathering. These are free to members and, for a limited time, free to former Hall members as well. Hope to see you there!
Gallery Night + Town Hall
Thursday, November 7 @ 6pm
Starting in November, Forum will be showcasing pieces from a new local artist each month. Carefully curated from the community, these emerging artists will present a choice selection of their works at Forum, where they’ll be available for viewing and purchase. We’ll be kicking off each month’s show with a gallery night—held prior to that month’s town hall—when the artist will come in to discuss and present their work. Come down and enjoy some wonderful art, talk to local artists, and stick around to help shape the future of Forum at the town hall.
Register for this event here.

She is a self-taught multimedia artist from Boston whose work has been featured in the Dorchester Art Project, Central Square, and numerous other venues.

Own Your Sh*t Workshop w/ Danielle Gertner
Monday, November 11 @ 7pm
They say the first step to any change is awareness. And the second step is OWNERSHIP. Owning who you are, what you stand for and how you want to show up in the world. In this immersive, discussion-based workshop, we will break down the habits, thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you so you can step in to your true power and become the person you and I both know you are meant to be. Workshop leader Danielle Gertner is a functional fitness coach, speaker and trainer teaching people to own their excuses and unleash their fullest potential. She’s offering this special workshop while visiting from Gainesville, FL, where she’s been featured in the Gainesville Sun, PopSugar, and VoyageMIA.
