CPDU’s credits will be provided for attending.
Hull-House and UIC’s Great Cities Institute launch the book, The World is Watching with a discussion, book signing and reception featuring award-winning poet, professor, architect of the Black Arts Movement, and Third World Press Foundation founder and publisher Haki Madhubuti. The World Is Watching is a compelling collection of historical and autobiographical essays that reflect on a wide range of world activist struggles, travels, international encounters and critical conversations on foreign affairs.
If you missed last Fall’s bookbinding workshop, you have another chance this month! Join Hull-House for a workshop led by featured Participatory Arts Hull-House artist Regin Igloria, founder of North Branch Projects - an organization that approaches community building through bookbinding practices, collective story writing and community archiving.
How can we form solidarity around indebtedness and make our voices heard? Hull-House co-presents with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, "On What We Owe," the latest installation of "Parts of Speech" - a series of lectures addressing the influence of speech on opinion, authority, intimacy and action. Join us at Hull-House in a conversation with activist, Astra Taylor, co-founder of The Debt Collective, about how debt affects millions of Americans today, and what we can do about it together.
