+ BIO: Catherine T. Morris

With over 15+ years of special event planning and community engagement, Boston native, Catherine T. Morris, has decided to combine both of her passions to start Boston Art & Music Soul (BAMS) Fest. This is a nonprofit organization that strives to breakdown racial and social barriers to arts, music and culture for marginalized communities of color across Greater Boston. Since 2015, the organization has produced and curated a traveling live arts and music series called “The Prelude.” This program entertains and helps audiences of color experience the arts in underutilized spaces across local neighborhoods. As a result, the organization has presented over 100+ local and independent musicians and artists, curated in (10) local venues and has attracted over 2,700+ attendees. It is Catherine’s hope that BAMS Fest becomes a pipeline to Boston’s arts and culture ecosystems in a way that revitalizes the streets of where we live, and can positively impact the livelihoods of our youth, families, and future generations.
