Can participation inspire social change? Participatory Arts: Crafting Social Change (September 6, 2018 to May 3, 2019) is a multidisciplinary exhibition that explores the Hull-House Social Settlement's influence on visual and performing arts in Chicago and beyond through historical and contemporary practices: bookbinding, the origins of art therapy, ceramics, theater and performance. Join us in October and November for the FREE Participatory Arts: Artist Workshop Series. Each workshops is led by artists featured in the new exhibition: art therapist Leah Gipson, book binder Regin Igloria, ceramist Nicole Marroquin, and the improv group Red Light School District. Come participate with us!

All backgrounds and abilities welcome! Workshops are located in Hull-House’s historic Resident’s Dining Hall that is wheelchair accessible.
