Join 2nd Floor Rear on Friday, April 21
during the Propeller Fund open House for an open discussion on embodying justice, embracing change, and defining our values as community-responsive arts organizers.
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, Friday, April 21
Hume Chicago, 3242 W. Armitage Ave.
2nd Floor Rear Director Katie Waddell leads a conversation with artists, staff, and collaborators of the festival about its developments and future challenges to introduce an idea-generating workshop for grassroots arts organizers, organizations and collectives. The group discussion will stem from the questions: As justice-conscious artists and organizers, how do we not only adapt to changing tides, but embrace them by consolidating our values, revising our way of doing things, and ultimately become even more valuable to the artists, communities, and missions we serve? How do we make our work sustainable in the long-term, while sustainability seems impossible? How do we meet our organizations’ needs and keep our projects alive while putting justice, equity, and transparency into practice?
