Connect with e5!

 

encuentro 5 is one of many progressive venues for the Boston-area social justice and social change community. It offers an event space, offices, and a number of shared resources.

 

Other important venues include the Community Church of Boston, the Democracy Center, Lucy Parsons Center, the Non Profit Center Boston, and Spontaneous Celebrations. Many student and campus organizations often have access to venues on their respective campuses.

 

If you would like to reserve a space for a meeting and/or event please fill out the form to the right.

 

If your organization is interested in joining encuentro5's group of resident organizations, please see the resident organizations' questionnaire.

 

Some considerations:

Who can use the space
  • e5 welcomes organizations and individuals from a wide range of progressive viewpoints that reject militarism and neoliberalism
  • e5 welcomes organizations and individuals challenging domination and exploitation
  • e5 does not welcome individuals and organizations that practice violence in any form
Event & Meeting Space
  • The main event space is about 2,000 square feet and we provide seating for up to 50 people
  • Our space is still in development and is not yet wheelchair accessible
  • There are several tables for smaller meetings, including a conference-style table (for small meetings up to 12 people)
  • We expect organizations to clean up the areas that they use and also to ensure that the bathrooms are returned to e5 in the same condition that it was offered
  • Addition rental charges apply for use of certain equipment
Publicity & Endorsements
  • We encourage organizations to provide flyers and notices of their event so that these may be advertised on the e5 website (at the discretion of the e5 organizers)
  • Holding an event at e5 does not imply that either e5, its resident organizations or Massachusetts Global Action endorses (and/or supports) the event or the organization(s) sponsoring that event
