Outside// transforms underutilized plazas and walkways into public spaces for all to relax, have fun, and connect with one another. Outside// provides programs across its 11 locations including a weekly Wag Wednesday dog program, 20 hours of live music performances each week, a 400-title Reading Room library, weekly fitness classes, new public art, and weekly food trucks. Outside// was created by Longwood Collective in 2019 in partnership with Boston Children's Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
