NEA members -- REPS members and advocates -- you are all invited to join us for the first annual TourFest 2015 (#TourFest15)
Spend Saturday May 16th with REPS and NEA getting behind-the-scene tours of some of Boston’s most interesting archival repositories. TourFest 2015, organized by the NEA Roundtable for Early Professional and Students (REPS), starts the day off with everyone going on two in-depth, behind-the-scenes repository tours. We'll end the day by meeting in Davis Square for Somerville's PorchFest: where musicians and bands throughout Somerville play music for the community from their front porches. This informal event is perfect for anyone who wants to hear a wide sampling of local music or anyone who just wants to stroll the neighborhood with friends.
