“GROW CREATIVE: Arts, Archives & Food Justice Activism”
A conversation between artist/activist Path P and artist/archival storytelling producer Jocelyn Arem on the intersection between art, archives and the importance of growing awareness around food justice.
“From Chicago to elsewhere”
A dive into the archives of Studs Terkel. I attempt to trace the course of this archival reuse and oral history project to invite other institutions to do the same.
“Back to You”
Using clips from the South Side Home Movie Project’s McClelland Collection, “Back to You” takes inspiration from the timelessness and playfulness of childhood– finding awe and love in every memory.
“This Personal Feeling”
A video art project about how your perception of “home” evolves as you grow older. It celebrates the city of Chicago as home.
At our kickoff event, program managers from each archive gave a brief introduction to our archives and the available collections, and discussed why archives matter, what archival reuse is, and what sort of possibilities you could do in your own project.
