We remain so grateful for the simple things in life like good music with friends and being able to continue working with some of the worlds most creative artists
 HotHouse was conceived as a means to amplify first voice narratives from marginalized and disenfranchised communities
For more than 30 years we have acted to collectivize our resources in the service of high caliber artistic expression and social justice activism
Our work is not about creating entertainment options but a means to instigate a paradigm shift toward progressive culture
In the three decades we have been serving Chicago we have witnessed amazing progress toward equity – we know we have a ways to come but we will get there together
No human is illegal
War is not the answer
Another world is possible
