Artistic Project Manager for Envisioning justice

Illinois Humanities is embarking on a two-year initiative called Envisioning Justice, which will engage Chicagoans from all neighborhoods, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds in a citywide conversation about the impact of incarceration on local communities. Using the arts and humanities, the initiative seeks to strengthen efforts to transform our criminal legal system away from dependence on the present system — and towards the goals of justice, accountability, safety, support, and restoration for all people impacted by crime and violence.
Envisioning Justice programming will take place at five Chicago neighborhood community hubs, in Cook County Jail, and in other locations throughout the city and state. Programming will culminate in a large-scale exhibition that documents the series and aggregates work created by communities during the initiative and exhibits work from commissioned artists. To drive this effort, Illinois Humanities is seeking an Artistic Project Manager with significant experience in both arts administration and programming and in criminal justice reform.

Curator, Envisioning Justice

Illinois Humanities is embarking on a two-year initiative called Envisioning Justice, which will engage Chicagoans from all neighborhoods, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds in a citywide conversation about the impact of incarceration on local communities. Using the arts and humanities, the initiative seeks to strengthen efforts to transform our criminal legal system away from dependence on the present system — and towards the goals of justice, accountability, safety, support, and restoration for all people impacted by crime and violence.
Envisioning Justice programming will take place at five Chicago neighborhood community hubs, in Cook County Jail, and in other locations throughout the city and state. Programming will be punctuated by multiple “open houses” showing work in community hubs, and will culminate in a large-scale exhibition that aggregates work created by communities during the initiative, work from commissioned local artists, and other work as determined by the Curator. To drive this effort, Illinois Humanities is seeking a Curator with significant experience in medium- to large-scale exhibitions and a deep understanding of issues related to criminal justice. This is a freelance, contract position with flexible hours. A greater time commitment is to be expected leading up to and during the opening of the exhibition in May 2019.
