Boston Coastline: Future Past  is a collective walk tracing a route from the prediction of the city's coastline to its history, as a way of physically understanding the future and past of a city changing at scales that are difficult to see and comprehend. 

This walk is led by Walking Sculpture exhibiting artist Catherine D'Ignazio in collaboration with several guest speakers–performance artists and scientific experts who will represent the future and the past.

Guest Speakers:

  • Eric Gordon, Emerson College, Director of the Engagement Lab
  • Brian Swett, Former Boston's Chief of Energy, Environment, and Open Space
  • Andi Sutton, an artist whose practice explores the ways that performance art methodology can create new models for community development and social engagement
  • Vivien Li, President, The Boston Harbor Association
