"Crossing Borders/Peace: Seven Voices" happened during the Ninth Annual Chicago Calling Arts Festival. Chicago Calling is a multi-arts collaboration festival; during Chicago Calling 2014 people in Chicago worked 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 2014 Chicago Calling Arts Festival was part of the 19th Annual Chicago Artists Month, which highlighted the work of hundreds of artists throughout Chicago with performances, exhibitions, open studios, tours and neighborhood art walks. September 27 – October 31, 2014, Chicago Artists Month (CAM) invited residents and visitors to meet artists and see their work at venues across Chicago. The 2014 theme, “Crossing Borders,” showcased 20 featured programs and artists in neighborhoods ranging from Avondale to Andersonville, Lakeview to Little Village, West Town to Wicker Park and Lawndale to the Loop.
CAM is presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in collaboration with the Chicago Park District and numerous community partners.
