Compass to Now|Here with Silvia Ines Gonzalez is a multilayered artists’ book project archiving Chicago’s history of settlement, resettlement, unsettlement, justice, and labor movements, in larger connection to national immigration policy.

The workshop for Compass to Now|Here invites participants to critically engage our city’s historical and narrative framework by joining artists in a virtual investigation of the installation. The public is invited to share their own stories around settlement, resettlement, and unsettlement as it pertains to individual experiences around living, organizing, and the geographical shifting that continues to shape the way our city is experienced. Join the artists for a reading of the work’s context as well as an art making and participatory invitation to become part of the work’s archive.
