About the Building Peace and Justice Series: 

To understand and seek solutions for the interpersonal and structural violence that is plaguing Chicago and its residents, the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum has committed to host a series of public conversations and art-based activities grappling with peace-building and violence.

 

Individuals, organizations, informal groups, anti-violence practitioners, artists and scholars from across the city are currently examining the root causes of interpersonal, institutional and community violence. Hull-House Museum will serve as a convening space for the public to explore trauma, healing, civic responsibility and innovative frameworks that seek to create the conditions for peace and more justice.

 

The museum will host art-based events, taking place both at Hull-House and other venues, that creatively engage with the themes of restorative justice, peacemaking, mass incarceration, and violence both interpersonal and structural.

Organizer

Jane Addams Hull-House Museum

The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum serves as a dynamic memorial to social reformer Jane Addams, the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and her colleagues whose work changed the lives of their immigrant neighbors as well as national and international public policy. The Museum preserves and develops the original Hull-House site for the interpretation and continuation of the historic settlement house vision, linking research, education, and social change.
