Stomping Grounds
December 20, 2018
5 pm- 8 pm

Join us for Free Write’s Monthly installment of Stomping Grounds on December 20th from 5-8pm.

Hosted by CAD Resident Organization Free Write Arts & LiteracyStomping Grounds is a free monthly open stage event for young creatives to develop performance, curation, and exhibition skills while connecting to the Chicago creative community. Hosted by Free Write Arts & Literacy in collaboration with Kuumba Lynx and Elephant Rebellion. Sign up to perform is on a first come first serve basis – so come on time!
Free Write Arts & Literacy engages incarcerated and court-involved youth and young adults in the performing, visual, and literary arts so that they become the narrators of their own stories and the authors of their futures. By co-designing creative space with our students, Free Write supports them as they develop educational and career opportunities that reduce recidivism while also contributing to the public discourse around issues of youth incarceration.

As a CAD Core Resident exploring the theme of Justice, Free Write will utilize CAD’s space for capacity building and strategic planning, with input from CAD Residents, Core Residents, students, the board of directors, external evaluators, and other stakeholders. Additionally, they will exhibit multimedia work created by criminalized youth to enable a public discourse around systems of incarceration and the conditions that give rise to them.

Interested in visiting the Free Write team during their office hours on Mondays 12 noon- 2 pm? Email carris@chicagoartdepartment.org to make an appt.
