Access to Care Salon
Third Estate Art is hosting a salon-style event where artists and activists will present their work on the theme "Access to Care." Think health care, child care, mental health services, community support, and all the things we rely on to live good lives and that are increasingly hard to get.
Each participant will use 10-20 minutes to talk, read, sing, perform, or however they'd like to showcase what they do for you. The event will end with a Q&A.
Featured guests include:
Jae Green - Performance Artist
Jae will perform a piece about maternal health care in rural Alabama.
Michele Hays - Community Advocate
Michele will share her work with Back on Their Feet, which helps families avoid homelessness and connects people to essential services.
Khloe Janel - Actor, Poet, and Singer
Khloe will perform poems that explore what self-care looks and feels like in 2019 as a black queer woman.
Laura Colaneri - Chicago Democratic Socialists of America Representative
Laura will discuss her work with the DSA on women's health care--including pregnancy crisis centers, reproductive justice, and Medicare for all.
*Third Estate Art NFP is a 501(c)3. We are a group of artists and activists who create public art about social issues. We also partner with city parks to bring art to kids' events and into field houses. We believe in paying artists for their time and work, so every presenter (or their organization) at the salon will receive an honorarium. We set up a pay-what-you-can system for buying tickets, so please consider paying a little extra when you buy yours--your money goes right into recouping our venue costs and paying the presenters.
