RSVP and donations are desired but not required! All are welcome to join the conversation.

 

With each magazine issue, Sixty will have a series of programs that bring out various conversations within the theme. As part of our “Margins” issue, we will hold a workshop that brings together artists and organizers who have experience creating ongoing projects throughout different communities in Chicago. The goal of this workshop is to share best practices of those who have successfully and thoughtfully worked in challenging communities and across social and cultural boundaries. Come with your questions on how to do this kind of work, or come to share your own experiences.

Speakers:

Miguel Aguilar
Artist, Founder of Graffiti Institute

Janice Bond
Cultural Curator, Director of Gallery ONI, Director of Arts and Culture at Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN)

Jim Duignan
Artist, Professor at DePaul University and Founder of Stockyard Institute

Maria Gaspar
Lead Artist + Facilitator of 96 ACRES

JoAnne Smith + Jacqueline Thomas
