Chicago's Urban Alternative

Current track




From Nov. 1 through 6, the Lit & Luz Festival of Language, Literature, and Art returns to Chicago with both in-person and virtual programming. This unique series of over a dozen bilingual readings, conversations, and performances centers Mexican writers and visual artists along with collaboration. Now in its eighth cycle, MAKE Literary Productions’s Lit & Luz Festival continues to support the creation of new art through international collaboration, and make space for essential dialogues between residents of Mexico and the United States.

Join the festival for a week of free virtual and in-person programs and our ticketed event, the Live Magazine Show. At this signature program, teams of transnational collaborators debut multimedia, multilingual pieces. The show will take place on Nov. 4, 7 p.m. at the Logan Center for the Arts and the work will speak to the theme, “Structure,” which considers the physical structures that house us, political and societal structures that surround us. Close out the festival at the Hungry Brain on Nov. 6, 9 p.m. with music, poetry, and Vocalo DJ Rocío Santos. For complete program details and COVID protocols visit litluz.org.
