How do I get involved?

There are many ways to get involved with the Chicago Arts Census! Below is information on how to get in touch with the Census organizers. If none of the below fits your needs, please send us an email to Census [at] acreresidency [dot] org. We will respond to every inquiry, but due to the high volume of emails and a small staff, there may be some time between our responses.

I want to ask a question or give feedback:

Our Feedback + Inquiries Form is for you to leave a note, provide feedback, ask a question, or inform us about text concerns. This form can be filled out anonymously, or you can share your information so we might be in conversation with you. Collected information helps shape our mission, FAQ, and project methodology.

I know someone who does similar work:

Our Referrals Form helps us connect to people and projects across doing mission-aligned work. Whether you are in direct contact with them or admire them from afar, we would love to know who they are! The collected data will help shape Census committee groups, Census outreach, and audience participation.

I have a helpful resource you should look into:

Our Resources Form helps us collect readings, exercises, workshops, or other information that would add to the project’s research and bibliography. Collected information will be shared in our living resources collection, which helps promote and share research around art, labor, policy, mutual aid, and history in Chicago and beyond.

I want to volunteer:

Our Volunteer Form helps us connect to you and your work! Simply tell us about yourself and how you’d like to get involved and we’ll be sure to reach out!
