The 20th annual Chicago Artists Month (CAM) took place from October 1 - November 15, 2015.

CAM is an initiative of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events that showcases the work of Chicago’s independent artists and arts organizations. As a platform for independently-produced events and programs in all disciplines, CAM highlights creative activity in Chicago neighborhoods; encourages tourism and small business development; fosters collaboration and opportunities for creative expression and learning. ;

CAM 2015 prioritized:

  • Experimental, innovative projects demonstrating a strong and original artistic/creative vision
  • New work (however, submissions will be accepted for both new and existing projects)
  • Projects seeking to increase public access to and participation in high-quality arts activities/events (especially underrepresented populations);
  • Collaboration (between neighborhoods, genres, demographically, or other);
