About this Organization:
Revolutionary Spaces connects people to the history and personal practice of democracy through an encounter with two of the nation’s most important Revolutionary sites, Boston’s Old State House and the Old South Meeting House.
We believe that each person has an important role to play in sustaining democracy and shaping our shared society. Through our interpretive programming – exhibits, tours, theatrical performances, visual art installations, and facilitated conversations – we seek to inspire all people to wrestle with the question of how to draw the circle of “We” in “We the People”.
