About #BostonBetter

#BostonBetter has multiple meanings. On one hand, better means healing—better physically and emotionally. But it also means an improvement in quality: a better choice, a better life. It is Abraham Lincoln's "better angels of our nature" and William Faulkner's "try to be better than yourself."

In April 2014 for the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, Boston-area cultural institutions are opening our doors wide to help our community feel better and be better. We want to start a conversation: What will help you heal? What will help the city heal? Together, how can we show the world that our response to this tragedy is to summon our best selves, individually and collectively?

What will make #BostonBetter?
