This month the Borderbend Arts Collective begins a new partnership with the Chicago Park District's Mozart Park. We are working with Mozart Park to present “Chicago Heroes & Arts Journeys,” a weekly arts workshop series.
Chicago Heroes & Arts Journeys participants find out about great Chicagoans and create writings (poetry and fiction) and music (with electro-acoustic instruments, soundscapes) that explore those great Chicagoans’ innovations and contributions. Each session will focus on one Chicago hero (someone who lived and/or worked in Chicago), followed by the creation of an artwork (poem, short story, piece of music, or multimedia artwork) that is inspired by that Chicago hero.
Chicago Heroes & Arts Journeys runs for twenty weeks. At the end of the program, participants will perform their works in front of a live audience, and they will be able to take home collections of workshop participants’ creations (CDs, books and 2D artworks).
Chicago Heroes & Arts Journeys is free and open to the public. Please contact us to find out more, and stay tuned for updates.
