Printers Ball 2015: Push and Pull
1821 W. Hubbard St.
Chicago, IL 60622
We're happy to be facilitating "Intersections Between the Arts, Politics & Community Building in Chicago," a roundtable conversation that happens during Printers Ball 2015: Push and Pull.
This roundtable conversation will focus on several key people and organizations throughout Chicago history whose work exists in the intersections of the arts, politics and community building. This conversation will include discussion of people and organizations such as the The Dill Pickle Club, Charles H. Kerr Company, Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, Marianne Moore, Carl Sandburg, Margaret Burroughs, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Carlos Cortez. Participants will be invited to offer suggestions regarding how some of the visionary innovations created by some of those important organizations and individuals can provide inspiration for what we can work on in Chicago in the future. The roundtable facilitators will include Penelope Rosemont, Adam Zanolini, Janina Ciezadlo, Toby Altman, Jennifer Karmin and Dan Godston.
