Organizational Mission

Honey Pot Performance (HPP) is a creative Afro-feminist non-profit that has evolved from an organic creative collective into a 501c3 organization. Since 2001, HPP has cultivated an approach to performance integrating movement, theater, and first-voice to examine the nuanced ways people negotiate identity, belonging, and difference in their lives and cultural memberships. We create multiform performance projects, participatory public humanities programming, and act as an incubator for the development of new works by artists of color aligned with our commitment to performance, storytelling, and the Black experience in all its diasporic variation.

The CBSCM is composed of “items” which are either geolocated sites, the spaces relevant to Chicago Black Social Culture, or the people whose stories animate these spaces. Digital ephemera solicited from program panelists and participants in community archiving days by the CBSCM team, as well as artifacts contributed on the Omeka site by the public, connect places on the map to information about the people who experienced and shaped them.
