it’s a clear thought, really, that we find meaning in the actions and beliefs of one another. as to ‘do it yourself’ is to manifest a passion, then to act collectively is to acknowledge and nurture a deeper, common need. fmly fest boston is an appreciation for those and that which do, not only for an individual catharsis but in order to nurture the communities and ideals that we wish to grow alongside. it is an absolute honor to collaborate with the awesomely inspiring arts and activist collectives of boston to organize a weekend of autonomy, a moment of solidarity, and an expression greater than itself. plus we’re really stoked to meet new friends and party hearty! check back soon for announcements regarding our schedule.


fmly fest boston was planned throughout a series of public meeting workshops beginning in february and running through june. none of this would be possible if not for the efforts and love from the media, boston hassle, dreamhaus, papercut zine library & lorem ipsum books, hum journal, democracy center, whitehaus, support boston, and more!
