The 10-Time Award-Winning FUNKADESI blends Indian music (bhangra, bollywood, folk) with reggae, funk, and Afro-Caribbean grooves. The Chicago-based band’s “one-family” vibe makes for an enthralling live shows & interactive workshops. President Barack Obama noted: “Funkadesi really knows how to get the crowd fired up! There’s a lot of FUNK in that DESI!” For the past 20 years, Funkadesi’s vision has been clear. This festive, virtuoso experience of cultural unity wows crowds through danceable grooves and brings communities together through education & dialogue.

Talking to Action: Art, Pedagogy, and Activism in the Americas
August 27 – December 8, 2018
Talking to Action investigates contemporary, community-based social art practices in the United States and throughout Latin America while attempting to build a direct dialogue with artists and researchers across the hemisphere to discuss shared concerns. Talking to Action focuses on the collaborative, dialogically-based form of art making that is most often referred to as “social practice” with roots in public practice, community-based, participatory, relational and socially-engaged art. Consequently, the artists in Talking to Action explore a range of trans-disciplinary practices, blurring the lines between object making, political and environmental activism, community organizing, and performance.
