Event Details

United, States, America: Three Problematic Concepts
“Wokeshops” for Informed Participation
March 31–April 2
MacLean Ballroom, 112 S. Michigan Ave.


Learn from experts how to become a more informed and engaged participant in America’s democracy.

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago is compelled to present United, States, America: Three Problematic Concepts, “Wokeshops” for Informed Participation, a weekend-long series of conversations and wake-up calls.

These “wokeshops” offer a toolkit for the citizen, immigrant, parent, student, artist, refugee, teacher, and the activist. They provide information needed right now to engage our challenging times. Experts in politics, economics, law, and journalism will share the depth and breadth of what they know, what they have seen, and what they do. Learn concrete examples and fanciful imaginings of how one might behave in this uncanny America. Exchange plans and promises, and devise pertinent, actionable strategies to address the current state of America’s democracy.

Attend one or all of the events. Free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
