Sixty Inches From Center

Chicago, IL

Creative Midwest Media Cohort


Sixty Inches from Center Logo


Sixty Inches From Center produces collaborative projects about artists, archival practice, art history, and culture in Chicago and the Midwest. They are a collective of arts workers, writers, editors, artists, curators, librarians, and archivists who promote and prioritize the preservation of culture within Indigenous, diasporic, queer, and disability communities of our region.

As part of the Creative Midwest Media Cohort, Sixty Inches From Center will launch a Midwest Writers Residency, centering two writers who reside in or lived a significant portion of their lives in Midwest cities outside Chicago. They will publish writings that highlight pressing cultural issues facing artists and arts workers and how that plays out in their city and regionally. Sixty will also host a public-facing virtual conversation with the writers to facilitate cross-regional conversations.
