HUBweek 2017 Celebrates Massachusetts’ Innovation Culture

| Posted by | Categories: Innovate, Visit

HUBweek, a weeklong festival of ideas and innovation that connects Boston’s iconic history, culture, science, medicine and technology, takes place October 10-15, 2017 in various places around Boston.

Founded in December 2014 by The Boston Globe, Harvard University, MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital, HUBweek taps the region’s distinct concentration of intellectual leadership, creativity and ingenuity that has helped make Massachusetts one of the world’s leading innovation economies.

One of the compelling features of this year’s HUBweek is a centralized festival site at Boston City Hall featuring signature events, workshops and hackathons, creative gathering spaces, competitions, art installations, and unexpected experiences. The village is being constructed with 60 + shipping containers and contains a geodesic dome larger than Fenway Park’s Green Monster, according to organizers.

Other highlights of HUBweek include GlobeDocs Film Festival; Immersion: A Nighttime Live Arts Experience; and a Futures Forum that discusses large-scale solutions to global problems.
