Precarity Youth Workshop: Day Two

July 09, 2016 at Gallery 400 in Chicago.


11:00am–1:00pm: Biz Swagg as Economic Self Defense for Teens
Led by LaKeisha Hamilton, founder of Youth at the CrossRoads.

Schools are strapped, parents are tapped—who’s going to show you how to put your panty hose on so you can get a job that serves you what you deserve? This is a workshop taught by Our Lady of practicality, honesty, and humor: Ms. Keisha Hamilton. Certified Corporate Swagg Coach and teenager-whisperer, she and her team will help teens see their true potential, which is much larger than a job—but she will also help you prepare to get a job. Resumes, business cards, posture, handshakes, and putting your wardrobe together to get a job that will help you survive—that’s our goal! We want you to ‘make it’ financially so you can go out and do what you really want to do! Art! Politics! Right?! Teens should come dressed representing your career choice—like you are going to a job interview for what you want to be doing in a few years! Also bring your resume if you have one. No one will be turned away if you don’t have this stuff.

1:00–2:00pm: Lunch and Undercommons Game with Max Haiven
Pizza will be provided by Gallery 400

2:00–4:00pm: TIFs for Teens (AKA Chicago is Not Broke!): Political Research and Activism for Teens
Led by Tom Tresser

Where is the money?! Most news tells us that the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois is ‘broke’. This city isn’t poor, but the money is hidden from the public—meaning that public education as well as many other vital public services are suffering. In this highly interactive workshop Tom will work with teens to develop an understanding of how money flows through the city, and where it goes when it’s diverted away from schools or public services, including special secret pots of gold called “TIFs”. Then we will work together to visualize how these special pots of secret sauce impact your public education in Chicago and what you can do about it.

The TIF Illumination Project ( has been investigating and exposing TIFs for the past three years. They have done presentations at 47 public meetings (called Illuminations) all over Chicagoland and have reached some 4,700 people. The lead organizer is Tom Tresser (, civic educator and public defender.

These workshops are organized by the Feminist Economics Department (the FED) as part of Mystery Hands, a project developed for kids to understand the issues of Precarity: the exhibition and the idea.

Fresh Ayers: Nicholson Baker – “Substitute” – with Bill Ayers

September 07, 2016 at The Seminary Co-op Bookstores in Chicago.


Nicholson Baker discusses Substitute: Going to School with a Thousand Kids.” He will be joined in conversation by Bill Ayers.

Co-sponsored by The Civic Knowledge Project

At the Co-op

About the book: In 2014, after a brief orientation course and a few fingerprinting sessions, Nicholson Baker became an on-call substitute teacher in a Maine public school district. He awoke to the dispatcher’s five-forty a.m. phone call and headed to one of several nearby schools; when he got there, he did his best to follow lesson plans and help his students get something done. What emerges from Baker’s experience is a complex, often touching deconstruction of public schooling in America: children swamped with overdue assignments, overwhelmed by the marvels and distractions of social media and educational technology, and staff who weary themselves trying to teach in step with an often outmoded or overly ambitious standard curriculum. In Baker’s hands, the inner life of the classroom is examined anew—mundane worksheets, recess time-outs, surprise nosebleeds, rebellions, griefs, jealousies, minor triumphs, daily lessons on everything from geology to metal tech to the Holocaust to kindergarten show-and-tell—as the author and his pupils struggle to find ways to get through the day. Baker is one of the most inventive and remarkable writers of our time, and Substitute, filled with humor, honesty, and empathy, may be his most impressive work of nonfiction yet.

About the author: Nicholson Baker is the author of ten novels and five works of nonfiction, including “The Anthologist,” “The Mezzanine,” and “Human Smoke.” He has won the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Hermann Hesse Prize, and a Katherine Anne Porter Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He lives in Maine with his wife, Margaret Brentano; both his children went to Maine public schools.

About Bill Ayers: William Ayers, formerly Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and founder of both the Small Schools Workshop and the Center for Youth and Society, is a graduate of the University of Michigan, the Bank Street College of Education, Bennington College, and Teachers College, Columbia University. Ayers has written extensively about social justice, democracy and education, the cultural contexts of schooling, and teaching as an essentially intellectual, ethical, and political enterprise. He is a former vice-president of the curriculum division of the American Educational Research Association.

His articles have appeared in many journals including the Harvard Educational Review, the Journal of Teacher Education, Teachers College Record, Rethinking Schools, the Nation, Educational Leadership, the New York Times, and the Cambridge Journal of Education.

His books include “Teaching Toward Freedom,” “The Good Preschool Teacher,” “A Kind and Just Parent,” “Teaching the Personal” and the “Political, Fugitive Days,” “Public Enemy,” and with Ryan Alexander-Tanner, “To Teach: The Journey,” in Comics, with Rick Ayers, “Teaching the Taboo: Courage and Commitment in the Classroom,” and with Bernardine Dohrn, “Race Course: Against White Supremacy.”

About the co-sponsor: The Civic Knowledge Project (CKP) is the community connections branch of the Division of the Humanities at the University of Chicago, and it generates, often in collaboration with the Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies, a wide range of special projects, including courses, workshops, lectures, tours, and volunteer/internship opportunities. The CKP’s mission is to develop and strengthen community connections through top quality, humanities-based educational programming, helping to overcome the social, economic, and racial divisions among the various knowledge communities on the South Side of Chicago.
