Activate 2017: Playground – The Rec Room of the Block

Activate 2017 begins on Thursday, June 15 from 5p-10p. At playground, the rec room of the block, there won’t be any sandboxes! Instead, you will enjoy an evening of activities that explore the alley’s role as a meeting place for tinkerers, game-players, and neighbors. Beyond their infrastructures that serve practical functions, alleys are gathering spaces for out-of-the-way play.

Join breakdancers, skateboarders, barbers, and ping pong players as they transform the alley into a night of nonstop fun and games. Curated by Missy Perkins and John Ibarra with Que4Radio!

ACTIVATE transforms iconic Loop alleys into pop-up urban experiences. Combining the talents of Chicago’s most creative minds, the events feature art, music, and more in unique urban settings.

RSVP for a free drink here. Must be 21+!

Activate will happen once a month through September. Future Activate 2017 dates are:

  • Wednesday, July 26
  • Thursday, August 24
  • Thursday, September 28
