AfroDesiaCity has been a regional event and consulting company based in Boston, Massachusetts, for over the past 10 years, specializing in live entertainment, special networking, and other value-added community events. We partner with emerging artists and professionals of diverse backgrounds to elevate your voice and support organizations in producing soulful events and creative and professional opportunities. Serving Boston's greater metropolitan area and the East Coast region, we offer various artists management, event production, and community and cultural activation.

Boston Harbor Now is working to re-establish Boston as one of the world’s truly great coastal cities. Everything we do is in partnership with public agencies, communities and private and non-profit partners. We encourage people to explore Boston’s waterfront and Islands through promoting and hosting hundreds of free and low-cost recreational, cultural and social events. We partner with the Mass Department of Transportation to develop and advance a Boston Harbor-wide water transportation plan for expanded ferry service. We co-manage and improve visitor experiences of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park. We partner with the City of Boston and waterfront communities to prepare for sea level rise while promoting outstanding waterfront open space. We support investment and innovation in Boston’s working port to better support our 21st Century maritime economy.

Soulful Bliss is presented by Boston Harbor Now & AfroDesiaCity, in partnership with the National Park Service, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation, Social Glue Media, RC Productions, Design4Equity, and Ride for Black Lives.
