Hosted by CAD's Justice Resident Free Write Arts & Literacy, Stomping Grounds is a free monthly open stage event for young creatives to develop performance, curation, and exhibition skills while connecting to the Chicago creative community. Hosted by Free Write Arts & Literacy in collaboration with Kuumba Lynx and Elephant Rebellion. Sign up to perform is on a first come first serve basis – so come on time!
As a CAD Core Resident exploring the theme of Justice, Free Write will utilize CAD’s space for capacity building and strategic planning, with input from CAD Residents, Core Residents, students, the board of directors, external evaluators, and other stakeholders. Additionally, they will exhibit multimedia work created by criminalized youth to enable a public discourse around systems of incarceration and the conditions that give rise to them.
