How Art Making Gave Birth to a Reparations Campaign (#RahmRepNow) for Chicago Police Torture Survivors

April 23, 2017
5:00pm  -  6:30pm
Theatre Lecture Hall

This panel will discuss the work of Chicago Torture Justice Memorials who organized a call for speculative memorials to recall and honor the decades-long struggles for justice in the Chicago police torture cases. Culminating in a major exhibition and series of events, this effort paved the way for a grassroots campaign that won unprecedented reparations legislation for torture survivors. Panelists will explore the relationship between art and activism and the power of memorials.
