TCA Event: Fruits of Our Labor

TCA invites you to Fruits of our Labor, a celebration of perseverance and community on Saturday, December 18th, from 1–4 PM in the MCA Commons and Atrium. There will be music, games, performances, activities, tabling from local community organizations, and food. You are invited to participate in the event and visit the Teen Creative Agency and A Long Walk Home reflection spaces within the Andrea Bowers exhibition.

About the Event

The space in the exhibition is the result of a year and a half-long collaboration between the two groups as we focused on the issue of missing and murdered Black women and girls in Chicago. This event will center around joy, childhood, and play and will serve as an opportunity for collective growth and change. We invite you to join us in circle as we make space as youth within an institution for the voices of those in the struggle against oppression and erasure.

Please RSVP in advance to ensure that you, your family, partners, and friends are all able to attend! This event will follow MCA Covid Guidelines.
