MW Productions/SPOKE activates the transformative power of art to heal divisions, strengthen community, and drive social progress. We forge a common path of equity and civic engagement across Greater Boston through visual art, dance, poetry & spoken-word performance. Young people are essential contributors to all of our work. Creating together, we emerge with a deeper understanding of ourselves, each other, and the world we share.
Our vision is that one day, all individuals will feel included and engaged in strengthening their community. They will recognize that art is not just a commodity. Instead, they’ll recognize art as a guiding tool that frees them to express their voice and to participate in their community.Learn More About Us

They started many of their projects and collaborated on ideas to come up with new and exciting pieces that will be showcased in August.
