As you know, Mindy Fried and Marie Ghitman, co-founders of Jamaica Plain Porchfest, have handed the reins of this much-treasured event to the amazing artists and art-managers from Dunamis, a Boston-based nonprofit organization. Neo Gcabo, musician and arts manager, will be organization’s lead producer.
In this time of uncertainty, the arts have been forced to pivot as we navigate the challenges of COVID. At Dunamis, our focus is to steer the work of Porchfest to highlight BIPOC-run organizations and communities, elevate the collaboration of community partners, and create long-lasting relationships between artists and community members through a robust, safe and engaging festival. With the fundamental work Marie and Mindy have done, we are excited to launch a reimagined Porchfest to the world.
Dunamis will of course adapt the event to ensure safety, based on the status of the COVID pandemic in summer/fall of 2021.
