A day of presentations, workshops, and performances that celebrate the contribution of art to social justice movements. This event is a unique way to build community and awaken our imaginations. Refreshments and dinner are provided! The event is FREE (registration appreciated), family-friendly, and open to all.
Based on their 2014 work Juke Cry Hand Clap: A People’s History of Chicago House & Black Social Culture, Honey Pot Performance is creating an interactive digital map documenting Black social culture from the Great Migration through the end of the 20th century. Check out the evolving map and fellowship with other Chicago community members who believe in the power of our collective social experiences as sites of pleasure, purpose, and politics. Add your memories and stories of house, disco, blues, jazz and other social music and dance forms. Food, drink, and music provided. Space is limited for these sessions.
