Call for Art & Craft Vendors || A City Divided || Deadline April 1st

Chicago Creatives:

We invite you to apply to show your artwork or host a table with us at our upcoming event, A City Divided!

We encourage artists to share work that unpacks divisive issues that Chicago faces, why they divide us, and what can help us overcome them. 100% of profits will benefit nonprofits that address issues that divide us.

There are many issues that divide us… Race, Class, Gender, Segregation, (Gun) Violence, Gentrification, (Quality) Education, (Public) Housing, Recycling, Graffiti, Priorities for Improvement, (Use of) Budget, (Access to) Employment, Displacement, TIF Districts, (Machine) Politics, Food Desserts, Rent (Control)…

Some that seem to divide us, actually unite us… Cubs vs Sox, Parking Meters, Best Pizza Spot, Chicago(land), Dibs, Sweet or Hot Peppers, Sears Tower, Construction, Most Iconic Food Item, Pot-holes, Best View of the Skyline, Hot vs Mild…

Event is May 18th
