A collaborative portrait of Boston

There's everybody else's idea of Boston...
and then there's the city YOU see.
Everyday Boston invites you to show us your Boston.

Take a photograph. Draw a picture. Write a poem. Record a sound.

Take us to places we haven't been before.
Introduce us to people we don't know.
Help us hear the rhythms of the city

The City I See is a project of Everyday Boston that uses visual media to confront the misconceptions surrounding the communities within the Greater Boston area.

The media is collected through a series of guidelines that provoke residents to go out and explore areas outside their everyday lives in order to gain a new perspective towards the culture that makes Boston so unique.

To get involved, select one of the guidelines below and follow the instructions for collecting and submitting media!
