In 2023, Threewalls will celebrate its 20th anniversary by dreaming of a racially just future through Call-and-Response: Dreaming of a Future.

With community at the heart of our project, we will host Dreaming Circles, where artists and their neighbors will collectively dream of a future Chicago. Their dreams will be shared out as calls and presented artistically in community spaces in their neighborhoods, spaces that they frequent. The spaces will be identified by the Dreaming Circles participants, and may be laundromats, bus stops, grocery and corner stores in South Shore, Andersonville, and Back of the Yards.
Please join us for the first introduction session of Dreaming Circles on Saturday, March 12th at 10:30am.

Hear more about what to expect for future Dreaming Circles and start collectively dreaming with curators Wisdom Baty, Nancy Sánchez and Adia Sykes.

This project is partially funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
This event is virtual on Zoom but there will be an in-person accessibility space at South Shore Public Library- 2505 E. 73rd Street Chicago, IL 60649.

Live captioning and Spanish interpretation will be provided.
