Sounds of Solidarity is a musical and arts showcase to designed to bring together Black and Brown artists from across the city of Chicago to participate in a free performance for the larger Chicago community.
This event has a goal of increasing dialogue amongst these communities to foster unity and to confront anti blackness in our city. This idea grew from the Decolonial Open Mic ChiResists has been hosting for 5 years which is a peace circle that encourages participants to perform, write and grow their communities.
Artists will gather for a day of activities, performances, workshops and a socially distanced community picnic in Pilsen.
