ACTIVATE presented by Chicago Loop Alliance

  • 205 E. 8th Street Chicago, IL (map)

ACTIVATE transforms iconic Loop alleys into pop-up urban experiences. Combining the talents of Chicago’s most creative minds, the events feature art, music, and more in unique urban settings. ACTIVATE is an initiative of Chicago Loop Alliance, which creates, manages, and promotes high-performing urban experiences that attract people and investment downtown. Last year the program had an estimated 16,000 attendees, 143 artists, and about $500,000 in economic impact.

This year's interactive art and music will appeal to all five senses. Join us for the first exhibition this season, TOUCH. Unlike your typical art shows, they won’t ask you to refrain from touching the artwork. They want you to touch, bounce, poke, and play with the art. TOUCH will feature massive inflatables, live performances, and a ball-pit like zone for people to explore.
