Creative Mash-Up!

Creative Health & Wholeness

Covid-19 has made the concept of health top-of-mind for most of us this past year (or is it decade?) and more. Our mental, emotional and financial health are tested daily. Chicago Creative Coalition is providing information, tools, resources, and experiences to help creatives thrive in this trying time.

Collaborative Design Across Disciplines

Design is a deep and magical thing, with language and ideas all its own in each discipline.

Musicians have notation, painters have color, photographers have light and composition, dancers have time, space, and energy.

How do designers who live in different creative worlds work together? Join us for a rousing panel discussion among groups of collaborators exploring how they communicate across disciplines to make incredible art.
