Archiving Social Justice in Chicago

  • Jane Addams Hull-House Museum 800 South Halsted Street Chicago, IL, 60607 United States (map)

A public discussion and presentation of local social change art projects, featuring Hull-House collaborators, past and present. Jane Addams Hull-House Museum’s current exhibition, True Peace: the Presence of Justice highlights Chicago artist-activists Monica Trinidad and Sarah-Ji. Trinidad, co-founder of Brown and Proud Press (2012) and For the People Artists Collective (2015), actively uses her art practice to push for spaces where both artists and organizers recognize the necessity of cultural organizing as key to effecting social change and imagining alternatives to policing and prisons. Sarah-Ji, a prison abolitionist and organizer, creates photography that documents Chicago’s extensive social justice organizing. Their work will serve as a catalyst for the discussion on ‘useful art,” the archive and documenting social change.
