NoCa is a volunteer*, participatory community organization. All members are expected to attend meetings and actively participate in NoCa activities.

spellbound Barbara Thomas and her husband, Timothy Wall have contributed the story "Circe, where is she now?" to Spellbound Vol.2, a continuation of Boston Comics Rountable urban-fantasy comics anthology. This volume of Spellbound has no city limits! Because, lets face it, magic travels well. Modern magic is the theme for volume 2, where tech meets hex, touch screen Ouija boards and the WiFi fairy. Staying within the present/future and it’s amenities, where do you see magic fitting in?

Using the sunflower as a metaphor, Nancy Beams explores expressions of trauma, recovery, and hope. Cambridge Arts presents Beams as one the 2017 Community Supported Art, an award-winning program featuring 9 Cambridge artists.
