Collaboraction returned to the parks in the summer of 2016 summer with PEACEBOOK, a new collaborative, city-wide festival of theatre, dance, music, visual art and spoken word – all focused on cultivating peace in Chicago. 

 

Part of the Chicago Park District’s Nights Out in the Park program PEACEBOOK sought to engage new artists, audiences, and communities in creating and sharing art that envisions a more peaceful Chicago. Each PEACEBOOK performance was a fast-paced collection of seven diverse, world premiere pieces of theatre, dance and spoken word, each seven minutes or less, uniting artists citywide, and creating real connections within communities around the city.
