Be a part of the story.


History can be a powerful tool for today, enabling people to participate more deeply in civic life and to recognize their own personal stake in the ongoing American experiment in self-government. We hope you’ll join us in challenging our understanding of our shared past and help us to explore the future we want to build.

HOME: About

Open History. Enter Democracy.

The Old State House served as the seat of government in colonial Massachusetts. Old South Meeting House was Boston’s largest gathering place for popular protests and political debate. By bringing these stories together, we are doing something that can’t be done anywhere else.

Who speaks for me? How will my voice be heard? Our answers to these questions tell us who we are, and who we hope to become.

The time is now.

As you know, the Bostonian Society and Old South Association in Boston came together to form Revolutionary Spaces in January 2020. We launched our new mission, vision, and branding during the commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Massacre where many of you joined us in the Main Hall of Old South Meeting House. Shuttered a week later by the pandemic, Revolutionary Spaces is once again ready to bring you together for an elegant night of celebration, commemoration, and a view not only into the past, but ahead to the future.

Guests of Honor

At our Inaugural Gala, Revolutionary Spaces invites you to come together in community to share in our vision to both preserve the past and uncover histories that can help us imagine a better future for the city and nation.

There will be two Honorees at the gala. One Honoree is well connected to Revolutionary Spaces’ past and future, and the other is a champion of democracy and growth, creating their own revolutionary space.

Revolutionary Spaces’ 2022 Inaugural Gala Guests of Honor are The Honorable Byron Rushing and Professor Danielle Allen.
