The Monument Project provides a central space for creative thinkers to re-imagine monuments and public art.
We seek to interrogate public memory, cultivate public imagination, and envision a more just future.
Our Instagram design challenges invite Harvard students to create monuments of any medium and consider in the process: What are monuments for?
Who are they for? Do we need monuments today?

The American Repertory Theater (ART) has been working with the Center for Popular Democracy as a part of their upcoming Transformation 2020 virtual event September 24-26. It’s a national event open to all, but aimed toward building up civic engagement and changemaking capacity for youth (ages 16-23). The ART will be contributing some sessions around their upcoming production of the musical 1776, which re-examines the pivotal moment of our nation’s founding, with a cast that more proudly reflects today’s America. The event will include a number of other workshops, teach-ins, keynotes, and performances. Some of the confirmed speakers include Senator Elizabeth Warren, Activist/Scholar Angela Davis, Fair Fight Action Founder Stacey Abrams, NYT Bestselling Author Ibram X. Kendi, and more.
The ART is putting together a Massachusetts Delegation of local youth, leaders, and educators to participate together in Transformation 2020, including 1,000+ free registrations for Massachusetts Youth. To join the delegation or to receive more information on how to amplify this opportunity, please fill out a short interest survey here.
