Chicago Calling is a multi-arts collaboration festival. During the 6th Annual Chicago Calling Arts Festival, people in Chicago work with people outside of Chicago — both here in the U.S. and abroad. These collaborations include a range of art forms, such as music, dance, film, literature, and intermedia — and they are prepared or improvised. Some Chicago Calling events involve live feeds between Chicago and other locations
Chicago Calling is an amazing event, and this year the Weirdos at W4tB are helping to curate. That mostly means that we are asking if people are interested in performing at our venue with their collaborator. Give us a yell if you have a cunning plan or if you need to be hooked up with an artistic partner,we might be able to direct you. Contact us at
