"We are thrilled to celebrate seven years of #1MPF in Chicago and we are proud to see our programing and the reach of our work diversifying - between the festival of women-identified artists, The Every 28 Hours Plays and the traditional 1MPF work that we are using to investigate what America and Chicago in 2017 post-election America looks like, comments Artists Director Dominic D'Andrea. "The opportunity to gather the community of artists, activists and citizens and focus on ways that we might begin to design the world we want to live in is a beautiful and necessary action. I'm proud of the community, our partners at the Den and the stunning nuance of the work we've generated together."
