Connect South Shore Returns

Special Service Area 42 (SSA #42) in partnership with Eric Williams owner of the famed Silver Room and Rob McKay of Connect Gallery proudly presented CONNECT South Shore Arts Festival. CONNECT South Shore features a tapestry of local and nationally regarded retailers, artists, musicians, and filmmakers, illustrating the richness of cultural expression, while generating small business revenue. Likewise, this enterprising marketplace was intended to stimulate visionary thinking and striking development opportunities for a community disproportionately impacted by patterns of disinvestment. The activation engages and celebrates the South Shore community by showcasing South Shore’s artists and entrepreneurs. This year we have added Fashion and Health & Wellness to the list of events.
