Thought-Provokers: Cambridge

Boston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Cambridge that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Asanda Madikane

Settle for what exactly? I could never be able to justify or explain, they had to see it for themselves. They had to know, what it takes to live a life, that was governed by your own ability to change the world and your selves. That life is truly for the brave. I love singing, I love performing, I love writing, I love creating, it is the very essence of who I am. I am in my best element. Read more>>

Blake Swanson

I love what I do, and being able to create every day feels like I am right where I should be. A big part of my life is still learning more about photography and how I can express myself through photos. I use instagram as a place to post various parts of my life through photos I take as well as ones taken of me, and am also currently working on a blog. Read more>>

Tori Hall

I’d say the project started around August of 2017. Under no title, I played a house show with just a three song set(I believe it was 2 originals and a Sylvan Esso cover). The idea of doing a solo project was something I’d thought about for some time, but after that gig I felt more confident in making it a reality. Read more>>

Cutting Ties

Our story starts at 150 Massachusetts Avenue in the summer of 2017. We all had just moved to Boston from different parts of the United States to study music at Berklee. We were some of the first people we each met during orientation week. We got together to jam and after that first jam session, we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do. So, we started trying to find shows around Boston and the Northeast. Read more>>

Ardith Goodwin

I am no longer on disability, am a full time working artist who travels globally offering creativity and painting workshops, and paints full time from my studio in Mobile, Al. Boston is on my list of places to bring my workshops to because of the deep history and story which fills its part of our journey. As a completely self-taught artist, I have had the great fortune of working hard. Read more>>

Andrew Tuminelli Dj Tumi

My DJ career continues to expand as I am lucky enough to play at new venues throughout the city periodically, help book djs for various venues, and I have begun to take my skills to the wedding industry as I have been invited to join the amazingly talented team over at Meritage Entertainment. Read more>>

Regina Mailloux

After high school, I dabbled in art as a hobby, and for a time I put it aside especially with my father’s death in 2001. I guess you could say life got hectic, my father died, I got married and had a child. It wasn’t until 2014 that I returned to the work of my heart. Social media was at its peak and I was inspired by all the artists who were showcasing their work. Read more>>

Anne Eder

I make monsters. As you can imagine, anyone making a statement like that likely has a story or two to tell and has traveled a twisty trajectory. “Briefly” might be a tall order but I am happy to share whatever parts of my journey may interest you. I am an interdisciplinary artist and educator. I came to Boston from Philadelphia to complete a masters degree and ended up staying for the opportunities. Read more>>
