Ag47 knows that youth creative voices should be amplified and their stories shared. The collective achieves this through artistic collaboration and one-to-one mentorship between youth artists and adult mentors. Ag47 prioritizes and strives to lift up the voices of girls, femme identities, trans and gender nonconforming folx, and individuals seeking brave space through creativity and community. By encouraging each other to take risks, ask questions, and present work to a public audience, AG47 provides youth with the chance to be heard and their communities with the chance to listen.
Who We Are:
- Adult and youth artists (aged 11-17) who come together in a mentorship relationship and have an interest in creative expression.
- We celebrate being weird. We create unique celebrations and compliment each other on our strengths and our bravery. We invite local artists to come teach us their craft or profession. We explore and encounter art across genres--from illustration to stop animation to performance theatre (and beyond). We make exceptional art and showcase it to our community at the end of our season.
- Sundays, 2-5pm, from January through April in Logan Square, Chicago.
The Ag47 Collective is an organization under the fiscal and artistic sponsorship of Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble. Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble challenges, engages and inspires audiences both onstage and in the classroom, through innovative, multidisciplinary storytelling in the genre of Tanztheatre, which unites all art media and to achieve an all-embracing, radical change in humankind. As an Ensemble, we collaboratively create thought-provoking arts performances and educational outreach programs incorporating elements of theatre, music, movement, visual arts and literary text. We are dedicated to “performance with a purpose.” More info can be found on their website: http://www.danztheatre.org/
