Amazigh Contemporary is a creative and communal space, situated in our apartment in River North, Chicago. It offers an intimate and inclusive way of experiencing art, learning, and community building. “Amazigh” means the “free people,” an ode to my ancestors, the indigenous people of North Africa. Amazigh Contemporary aims to inspire action for social change with art exhibitions, education sessions, community building activities, and much more. Our events are free and open to everyone.
