We are

Collaborative, radical, re-Activated.

Our mission is to invigorate Chicago's artistic legacy by connecting artists to archives throughout the city, sparking experiments in creative interpretation, uncovering lesser known histories, and sharing archival practices with local artists and their communities. An initiative of Sixty Inches from Center, CA+AP hosts the Chicago Archives + Artists Festival. CA+AP works with countless volunteers and community partners to amplify artists voices in the archive and beyond the mainstream.
