Chicago Land School (2020)
The Chicago Land School is a project of the Stockyard Institute that focuses on all of our work outdoors in Chicago. These include small and large scale works that imagine successes through a collaborative, meaningful coordination with many individuals, small organizations, local agencies, artists and collectives, self-determined local groups of gardeners and growers, and especially, residents who live in that community. There is a desire to make neighborhoods safe, beautiful, and activated by building temporary projects or sustainable programs that explore solutions for the best use of lands and land issues in a community. We expect to align and connect underserved and underfunded groups and spaces with opportunities through our networks.
