In the Neighborhood and Around Boston
Besides the regular programming above, Discover Roxbury co-presents opening receptions, films, and concerts happening in Roxbury to help raise awareness of those events and to encourage Roxbury residents and visitors to attend.
 
Additionally, Discover Roxbury's work with dozens of local artists allows the organization to create pop-up shops and galleries in Roxbury and around Boston. The pop-ups range in time from a weekend to a month, and provide artists with new points of contact with patrons. They also provide patrons with new opportunities to purchase unique works of art and build their collections.
 
Legal Clinics for Artists and Arts Administrators
Beginning Autumn 2013, Discover Roxbury will work with Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (VLA) to provide legal services, advice, and educational programming to artists and arts administrators in Massachusetts. The clinics will be held at Discover Roxbury's office on September 25 and November 2. For more information about the clinics, please read the fact sheet here.ArtROX! Barcelona
 
International Artist Exchange
In response to ArtROX! artists asking Discover Roxbury to facilitate new opportunities to broaden their experiences and contacts, Discover Roxbury will facilitate a cultural exchange with artists in Barcelona in September 2014. Barcelona, Spain's second largest city, is also one of Boston's sister cities and home to a dynamic arts scene with hundreds of contemporary artists living among the creations of masters like Gaudi and Picasso. The exchange will include visits with local artists and to international cultural sites. It will also include opportunities for participating Boston artists to work collaboratively with Spanish artists and independently on their own work. Once back in Boston, participating artists will share their experiences and exhibit work developed in and/or influenced by the exchange. For more information, please read the fact sheet here.
