Founded in 2005, AREA Chicago supports the work of people and organizations building a socially just city. AREA actively gathers, produces, and shares knowledge about local culture and politics. Its newspaper, website, and events create relationships and sustain community through art, research, education, and activism.

On this website you can find information about various facets of AREA as a publishing project: the print publication, the blog, several special projects, public events. You can also find out more about AREA as a learning community, an organizational experiment, and facilitator of connections between existing projects and communities in the city.
