The POWER Project
Beginning in 2017, The Comfort Station and the Art Leaders of Color Network (ALCN) have joined forces to present the annual P.O.W.E.R. Project In lieu our regular programs over the course of one month, the Comfort Station will be transformed into an ‘empowerment hub’ with a series of performances, lectures, discussions, happenings, self-care exercises, and much more led by artists and members from the broader Chicago creative ecosystem. The hope is that through series of engagements, people will be able to not only to lead their own actions but inspire others to take a stand against injustice and intolerance through meaningful artistic experiences.
The 2019 edition of the P.O.W.E.R. Project will occur in September, with programming by Jamillah Hinson, Dewon Evans, and Alyssa Martinez. Brett Swinney is the ALCN director of the project.
