On October 24, 2015 the Chicago Cultural Mile Association (CCMA) plans to launch one of Chicago’s most exciting, new initiatives—The Halloween Gathering. This powerful event will gather Chicago’s vast and diverse creative communities for an all-day festival culminating with a magical nighttime parade. Drawing together world-renowned institutions including the Field Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Columbia College Chicago and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, as well as unique local organizations like Louder Than a Bomb, Silent Theatre Company, and guilds of artists in assorted fields, this dramatic display will activate Halloween as the “artist’s holiday” along one of the most prestigious cultural avenues in the world.
The CCMA is looking for artistic volunteers to spearhead a crafting activity for the Halloween Gathering event between 2 – 5pm in the Chase Promenade Tent of Millennium Park.
Volunteers can help and participate by showing families, visitors, spectators and guests how to create and construct lanterns. The lantern patterns and designs are unique and simple to instruct others how to make. At dusk, attendees will carry these lanterns in the parade.
CCMA will contribute all supplies needed and you will provide the creative fun.
This is a great opportunity to meet and work along side other professional artists who are sponsoring different event spaces in the tent area.
