6018 North's Water Music on the Beach in partnership with
The Instigation Festival

Water Music is a series of live performances responds to and highlights Chicago’s proximity to water. The compositions and scores - involving multiple performers and solo performances - reflect, react to, or personify the sounds of water. Help us end the festival on the beautiful Chicago beach in the Edgewater neighborhood. Bring a picnic, we'll have some goodies but the more treats the merrier. 

Move Me Soul+ Ben Lamar Gay
Benelux (Helen Gillet, Lia Kohl, Katinka Klein)
Marie Casimir + Meida McNeal

6018North's dilapidated mansion is located in Edgewater, one of Chicago’s most diverse neighborhoods. Located in Edgewater’s Kenmore-Winthrop dense corridor of apartment buildings home to CHA, Section 8, trans-gender residents, and international refugees, as well as single family homes and condos, this neighborhood is diverse on multiple levels -- economics, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and education. Yet diversity does not necessarily create a diverse community. Therefore 6018North asks how artistic encounters can connect neighbors and create a space to meet through art, food, architecture, and/or performance? 

6018North is also itinerant. We create exhibitions and events in storefronts, on the beach, streets, gardens, and in classrooms. Wherever we are, we invite artists to transform spaces through art while drawing people together.
