Welcome back! Choose from more than 50 reinstated walking tours, book a CAFC River Cruise and come see what’s new at the Center.

In this two-day workshop, we'll merge the real and digital worlds as we work with gamers and design professionals. From 9am to 3pm, we’ll visit Chicago’s iconic Loop buildings and plazas for inspiration, and then build our own engaging public spaces using Minecraft. Students will learn team-building and design skills while they create “people plazas" like miniature parks and temporary art displays that engage us in thought and play.
