Open Call for Program Proposals — Art Institute Block Party 2020

We are thrilled to host our third annual Block Party on Sunday, July 26—a full day of performances, talks, film screenings, storytelling, and art making in and around the entire museum.

This year’s theme is Room to Move. Whether you’re considering bodies, objects, populations and communities, ideas, or something altogether different, we want to know: What does it mean to move? What can movement look or sound like? How can movement feel? What kinds of moves inspire you?

We invite you to share your moves with Chicago.

Offer a workshop, talk, performance, or other experience you’d like to lead in the museum’s galleries. Think about stories or creative practices you’d like to share, audiences you wish to reach, or artworks at the museum that you want to connect with. Submit your pitch to contribute to this year’s Block Party by Saturday, February 15. While the content and format are totally up to you, we’ll be looking for presentations that focus on movement and/or the Art Institute in some way. We welcome proposals from people of all ages and backgrounds. Selected contributors will receive a modest honorarium.
