The Arts and Culture Public Hearing on HowlRound TV livestreamed from the Boston Public Library's Central Library's Rabb Lecture Hall. Boston residents shared their ideas with the Art and Culture working group about how they would improve the City of Boston. These ideas were collected and integrated into a final presentation that the working group would share with newly elected Mayor Martin J. Walsh at the end of January.
