Mapping Arts-Chicago, coming soon

New Year, New City
Introducing Mapping Arts-Chicago!

Blackbird Arts and Research is happy to announce there will soon be a third city in the Mapping Arts Project. Welcome, Chicago! Mapping Arts-Chicago is the work of a partnership between Blackbird and Honey Pot Performance. Honey Pot Performance's project, Juke Cry Hand Clap, looks at the histories of house music in Chicago throughout the 20th century. They've been hosting workshops, creating dance performances, and gathering information about the people, places, sounds, and movements that have been instrumental in Chicago's music scene through the "Mapping Sessions." Now, we are collaborating to bring this to the MAP!
