During a day of dance and protest, Jane Addams Hull-House Museum will offer Spanish and English language tours focused on worker rights issues important to Hull-House reformers and their immigrant neighbors. The tours will culminate with a participatory ‘CareForce Disco’ workshop facilitated by artist Marisa Morán Jahn that narrates the growing movement for affordable care, domestic workers’ rights, and immigration. JAHHM presents CareForceOne in partnership with Open Engagement in conjunction with the museum's current exhibition, VOX POP: The Disco Party, that provides platforms for discontented and disenfranchised votes and voices, on view through April 30.
Tours and ‘CareForce Disco’ workshop will begin at 12:00 and 12:30pm (Spanish) and 1:00PM (English).
The CareForce Disco is an ongoing set of dances that artist Marisa Morán Jahn (Studio REV-) facilitates with domestic worker and domestic employer groups across the nation. For Open Engagement, Marisa invites OE participants to join a newly choreographed march that honors and includes the leadership of the Illinois Domestic Worker Coalition who in 2016 passed the state’s first bill of rights to protect nannies, housekeepers, and caregivers! The march’s easy-to-follow gestures narrates/renders the urgency of the domestic worker movement whose victories intersectionally support the women, historically under-recognized folks, immigrants, and the wage justice campaigns such as the Fight for Fifteen.
