Chicago Mobile Makers

Pop-Up Workshop: Bensenville

Saturday, Apr 17th, 2021
5:00 AM–5:00 AM
No registration required. Free to the public

We are proud to partner with Chicago Mobile Makers to co-host four pop-up workshops throughout Chicago and the suburbs. Our first stop will be Bensenville! Mobile Makers and EAM staff will be located at:

Blackhawk Middle School
250 South Church Road
Bensenville, Illinois 60106

This Spring and Summer, the Mobile Makers truck will feature images from our current exhibition In Focus: The Chicago Freedom Movement & the Fight for Fair Housing. While outside the truck, we will feature a hands-on activity from our Activist Art Kits, generously provided by the Goethe-Institut. Participants will design kites with messages of activism and positivity to fly in their neighborhoods.

Chicago Mobile Makers creates programming that encourages Chicago youth to become advocates and change-makers in their own communities through design-focused skill-building workshops.

This event is part of our Art is for Everyone education program. It is generously supported in part by McDonald's and a grant from the League of Chicago Theatres and ComEd.

In Focus is generously sponsored by the JCS Arts, Health and Education Fund of the DuPage Foundation and David C. & Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation

We will be following COVID-19 guidelines and procedures as outlined in the ReStore Illinois Phase 4 plan.
