Through community partnerships, contemporary forms of storytelling, and important civic conversations, Revolutionary Spaces strives to bring people together to explore the history and continue the work of democracy that is evoked so singularly by the two national treasures we care for – Old South Meeting House and the Old State House, located two blocks from each other in the heart of downtown Boston. We believe that our nation’s most fundamental questions took shape here, and we are dedicated to creating experiences for our audiences that not only deepen understanding of the past, but also provide a fresh perspective on the world we live in today and help us create new ideas and tools to help us build a more just and equitable tomorrow.

Revolutionary Spaces is an equal opportunity employer. We center our work on the following values:

  • Inclusion: We are dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion and ensuring accessibility on multiple dimensions.
  • Relevance: We are dedicated to creatively linking lessons of the past with the interests and concerns of Boston’s diverse communities today.
  • Boldness of thought: We address challenging topics and promote understanding in response to controversy.
  • Engagement: We encourage people to engage, add their voices to today’s debates, and collaborate with others to discover new ways of thinking.

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”.
