As the first citywide planning effort of its type in half a century, We Will Chicago seeks to develop a people-focused vision for all aspects of the Chicago government using three guiding principles: EQUITY. DIVERSITY. RESILIENCY.
As part of this work, Honey Pot Performance has been selected as the lead public engagement artist to support aspects of this greater planning initiative.
We imagine working with a cross-section of emerging and established cultural workers and community organizers rooted in place. We will harness this process not only to support the creation of a people-centered citywide plan but to uplift Chicago’s neighborhood cornerstones who are foundational to change across the city. We believe change has to happen at the neighborhood level to be sustained.
Our job is to ensure that the We Will Chicago initiative begins and ends with a people first plan that represents and positively impacts all of the people of Chicago. Honey Pot Performance will work with a core group of artists and community organizers to guide the work.
