Mobius Returns to Fort Point!
It is another year full of possibilities at Mobius, and to kick it all off, we are excited to announce that we have moved back to Boston and Fort Point!
What does this mean?
To start, we are no longer operating our former space at 55 Norfolk Street in Cambridge. Instead, Mobius’ office has relocated to the Midway Studio building at 15 Channel Center Street, Suite #202 Boston, MA02210. We have an exciting year of programs lined up for 2017 that will occur both at Midway and in collaboration with other venues around Boston and beyond.
Though we are excited by the potential that this move offers us, this was not an easy decision. Mobius had a productive time in Cambridge over the last five years and facilitated hundreds of new projects from a broad range of local, national, and international artists. During this time we formed a strong relationship with the Cambridge arts community – a relationship that we look forward to continuing to foster moving forward, even as we transition back to Boston.
As you may know, Mobius also has a deep and longstanding relationship with Fort Point, having once called the area our home for a span of over twenty years. For this reason, it seems fitting that our return to Fort Point will coincide with Mobius' 40th anniversary as an organization. During this landmark year, we look forward to reflecting upon and celebrating our past while we continue to build towards a stronger future!
Thanks to all of the artists we work with and our supporters, Mobius continues to evolve, grow and adapt to the many challenges we and other arts organizations face. Our new change of location comes with a renewed inspiration to identify ways that artist-driven experimental practices can contribute to meaningful conversations and forms of actions during these contentious social and political times.
Thank you for being a part of this work. We look forward to seeing and working with you all in 2017!
All our best!
