About Pivot Arts

Pivot Arts produces and presents contemporary and multidisciplinary performance on Chicago’s far north side. We develop new work and present performances throughout the year culminating in a large-scale festival. Our vision is that of a vibrant community where collaborations between artists, businesses and organizations lead to the support and creation of unique performance events.

Pivot Arts was formed in September 2012 as a pivot point, or central hub, that could connect innovative arts partners and programming. We support multidisciplinary artists through our arts incubator program and foster the creation of imaginative performance events. In addition to the Pivot Arts Festival, we host a Live Talk series that includes performances and discussions, we also create site-specific works throughout the year.
