CHF returns to Creative Chicago, picking up on its key question: “What does Chicago need?” Join Kenyatta Forbes, the creator of the card games Trading Races and Trading Rappers, for an interactive conversation about race.
Kenyatta Forbes is the mind behind the card games Trading Races and Trading Rappers, in which she uses play as a way to facilitate conversations on the topic of race. Kenyatta has exhibited work at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, spoken on panels for Wakandacon and the Chicago Teachers Fund, and taught workshops at venues throughout the United States. She is also the curator of “We Got Game,” a game summit celebrating the social impact of games with the intersection of gaming culture.

In 2018 as part of the Terra Foundation’s initiative Art Design Chicago and under the banner of Creative Chicago, CHF convened artists from across the city for a six-hour conversation about Chicago-style creativity, past, present and future. To kick off Chicago’s fall cultural season, CHF returns to Creative Chicago, picking up on its key question: ‘What does Chicago need?’ through a set of conversations, digital polling and interactive experiences designed to elicit ideas about how our city’s residents, cultural institutions and artistic legacies/collections can work to develop empathy, friendship and connection across its citizens.
