@thefranklinoutdoor @covidtv #takeover THE FRANKLIN is proud to present artists and friends in action. Over 20 Chicago artists will be connecting LIVE for a 14-hour Instagram LIVE marathon: THE FRANKLIN takeover, hosted by @COVIDtv. Readings, workshops, conversations, yoga, art making, live music, Dj’s and more. Follow our guests at their instagrams to look, listen and be surprised by creatives at work and play. THE FRANKLIN is an artists-run project space that allows artists and curators to engage with the East Garfield Park community through cultural events. THE FRANKLIN is located in the backyard of Edra Soto and Dan Sullivan’s home. @Covidtv is a media network founded by Julia Arredondo (@casualhaiku, @qtvclive) organizing long-form programming for IG Live. The first broadcast took place on March 22 and will continue to run Sundays from 10am-10pm/CST into the foreseeable future. All broadcasts happen directly from each individual participants' personal Instagram handle. Past programs have included live music, dj sets, healers, guided meditation, show and tell, painting tutorials, financial guidance and consultation, cooking classes, tarot readings, zinesters, comedy, and more. Anything goes! A different organizer will step in each weekend to curator and coordinate the 12-hour block.
