Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
800 S. Halsted Street


Jane Addams Hull-House & the Chicago Architecture Biennial
Public Architectural Tours
Wednesdays & Sundays, 1pm

Only 3 More Chances! Architecture tours at Hull-House will conclude for the winter season on Sunday, December 20, 2015!

During the Chicago Architecture Biennial Hull-House will host free hour-long public tours with an architectural focus, twice-a-week on Wednesdays and Sundays, 1pm – 2pm.
During these tours, visitors will learn about neighborhood conditions in the Near West Side at the turn of the twentieth century in Chicago, including life in tenements and sweatshops, as well as the unique work of the Hull-House settlement. Learn about the Model Tenement Movement, the foundational moments of public housing, and how the buildings of the Hull-House settlement embodied the ideals of the Progressive Era.

The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum invites Chicago Public School Teachers and community-based youth workers to participate in a youth-led Teach-In Series.

These teach-in’s will center on the lived experiences and action-based research of Cities of Peace Fellows who have been interrogating the roots of structural and interpersonal violence, community resistance, and healing in Chicago and Cambodia. These teach-in’s will incorporate original research, primary source documents, arts interventions, and discussion with local activists and scholars engaging issues of migration and immigration, criminalization and policing, gender-based violence, and trauma-informed critical pedagogy.
January – May 2016
10am – 2pm
One Saturday a Month

The application deadline is Friday, December 18th, 2015.
