Festival To Celebrate South Side’s Creative Spirit

Festival To Celebrate South Side’s Creative Spirit

Cultural organizations like the Hyde Park Arts Center, Stony Island Arts Bank and the DuSable Museum of African American History are teaming up this weekend for a series of events highlighting creativity on Chicago’s South Side.

The daylong event — called “Celebrating South Side Stories” — will feature musical performances, storytelling, museum tours, and even a collage-making workshop.

Morning Shift talks to two of the creative people who are participating in the extravaganza about their work, the performances they’ll be giving at the festival and their own South Side stories.
