Beginning in 2021 NON:op invites you to participate in one of our initiatives:

  • Unheard Voices. The Memory Project initiative provides opportunities for meaningful participation in the creative process from all who care to participate. Individual programs include Blood Lines, SAY THEIR NAMES, American Biography, L’s GA : Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and The Gas Heart. Click on the link for each program to find out how to participate.
  • Individual and Community Experiences. Our sound projects—annual Aural Neighborhoods soundwalk with Open House Chicago and HEAR BELOW pedway soundwalk; HPSCHD@50: Every Neighborhood Is a Universe festival in Chicago, Evanston, and Urbana-Champaign; and new Viral Silence: Community Portraits in Response to COVID-19—create long-term partnership and collaborative opportunities for artists and organizations to work together to create meaningful and sustainable impact within their communities.
  • Artist Commissions. By commissioning artists of color and artists with disabilities, we provide economic opportunities for two groups of artists who have been historically marginalized, and hardest hit by the pandemic. In 2021 we are commissioning five artists/teams to create work for Viral Silence and L’s GA. Find out more about our commissioned artists and commission program HERE.
