Convergence is a new series which sits at the intersection of art and activism. We spent the summer interviewing healthcare workers, commissioning artists, and editing a piece meant to reveal the scope, context, and impact of the current pandemic on our community.

The 8-week course included seven 8-year-olds who created a short film, “Back from the Future to the Past and Back.” On December 4th, film premiered at the historic Music Box Theatre in Chicago.
This class has been a special experience and we hope that it grows so kids all over Chicago can participate! An important part of our Soft Cage mission is to actively remove the barriers to production. Too often, filmmaking is an art that is inaccessible to those who lack resources. Through our classes and films, we are empowering students and those at the beginning of their career and beyond.
Our 2020 goal is to be able to continue the film class and provide financial support to ALL our student participants. This will allow us to expand the class and serve more students.
