Buddy and Public Media Institute are proud to announce an afternoon of public programming: performance, screenings, and discussions, at the Chicago Cultural Center to culminate a yearlong excavation of BIPOC and QT+ histories and futures of the region now known as Chicago by five local artists and collectives. In Fall 2020, the artists embarked on a year of interdisciplinary research with librarians, historians, archivists, and scientists now culminating in a series of public performances using new technologies to engage history and place.
