We are a shared studio workspace with a storefront exhibition area. We're looking for chill, inspiring, respectful studio-mates to join our community, and have a hand in the next iteration of the space. Below is the information for Hume's current studio rentals. The future of the space, from August 1st onward (including the size and number of the studios, the rent, and the frequency of exhibitions/programming) will be decided by its new members. If you're interested in shaping the future of a community studio/art space with a strong history and a homey vibe, apply below.
~HUME STUDIO INFO (Through July 31st)~
Move-in date first of the month. Rent $175/month plus utilities (usually $15).
We offer: a 50 square foot personal workspace in a shared approx. 1000ft Logan Square/Humboldt Park storefront artist-run community spot.
We boast: 24 hr access, the fastest internet money can buy (from AT&T), a shared computer with Adobe CS, lots of basement storage, a bathroom, good eats and drink all up & down the block (Armitage & Kedzie), and our company.
You are: a handsome and just human being with an interest in community-building and art-making. You do not mind music being played or friendships being forged. You also enjoy welcoming community into your space for readings, gatherings, art-openings, and the like (at least twice a month). You may even be interested in helping out at events or hosting workshops! We hope so.
We are: an artist-led, community-supported project space focused on serving the Logan Square/Humboldt Park communities through dynamic, accessible arts programming. We aim to foster an inclusive, creative environment in which emerging Chicago artists and their neighbors can commune and engage. We feature frequently rotating exhibitions by artists whose identities have historically been marginalized by commercial galleries. We also hold public events including game and movie nights, workshops, artist talks, opening celebrations, etc. Each workspace is clearly marked as separate space, but Hume's floorplan is open. While our events are staffed with volunteers and our visitors have historically been very respectful of studio spaces, keep in mind that storage of artwork, materials, tools, and technology is at your own risk.
We are constantly working toward being a safer space in which oppressive or harmful behavior is not welcome. As such, if you have been named by a survivor as a rapist or abuser, you are not welcome in our community space.
If it sounds like a good fit, get in touch ASAP!
