Civic Cinema: The Fun Theory & Bogotá Change

What does fun have to do with social change? How can mimes, super hero costumes, and artistic interventions help to transform a city? 

Join us for a lively screening of Bogotá Change, the movie that tells the story of how Antanas Mockus reshaped an entire city through creativity and an incredible commitment to being human. After the movie, we will share ideas for how to transform Chicago through creative projects with special guest Gilda Haas, former Director of Strategic Actions for a Just Economy and co-initiator of the Right to the City Alliance.  Bring your best plots, schemes, and dreams.

This event is free and open to the public. Register NOW.

This event is presented in partnership with and The Public Square

More about Civic Cinema 

An exhilarating series of films, forums, and conversations, Civic Cinema uses the most exceptionally creative and engaging documentary films of our times to help communities talk about the most pressing social issues facing us. The documentaries we screen and discuss challenge many of the mainstream representations of critical social issues. Art, in this case, becomes a way of thinking about how history and truth are represented and a way of promoting media literacy.
