at multiple venues in the Chicago area
The Borderbend Arts Collective proudly presents the Tenth Annual Chicago Calling Arts Festival. Chicago Calling is a multi-arts collaboration festival; during the Ninth Annual Chicago Calling Arts Festival people in Chicago work with people outside of Chicago - both here in the U.S. and abroad. These collaborations include a range of art forms, such as music, dance, film, literature, and intermedia - and they are prepared or improvised. Some Chicago Calling events involve live feeds between Chicago and other locations.
The 2015 Chicago Calling Arts Festival is part of the 20th Annual Chicago Artists Month, which highlights the work of hundreds of artists throughout Chicago with performances, exhibitions, open studios, tours and neighborhood art walks. The 20th annual Chicago Artists Month (CAM) celebrates the City as Studio: from October 1 - November 15, 2015, join this community-contributed showcase of Chicago's artists and creatives and experience art in the parks, dance in the neighborhoods, installations in the alley, and concerts on the front porch. CAM is presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in collaboration with the Chicago Park District and numerous community partners.
Chicago Calling is presented by the Borderbend Arts Collective, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote the arts by to creating opportunities for artists to explore the aesthetic geography along the borders and boundaries between art forms. Annual Borderbend projects include Chicago Calling and the Mingus Awareness Project. Other organizations partner with Borderbend to enrich and extend the reach of its programs.
