At Deborah’s Place, participants create original music and art in the form of Graphic Scores. Over the course of six visits, participants learn musical concepts while also exploring the role of art in society. Utilizing a variety of artistic media, this program explores how art can make political and philosophical statements. The women of Deborah’s Place are encouraged to find their own voices through creative work, covering topics such as the empowering journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency, or the struggle of family trouble and solutions to overcome it.
In the past year, Fifth House Ensemble shared the stages of numerous public spaces with members of this residency to jointly advocate for those experiencing homelessness in Chicago.
