This year's Co- MISSIONS Fellowship Artists are: J'Sun Howard and Ayako Kato / Art Union Humanscape.
J'Sun's Co-MISSION Fellowship will work towards the premiere of "Working On Better Versions of Prayers" which creates charismatic space for black boy joy. A poetic testimony that miracles erupt at any moment. 


Kato's Co-MISSION Fellowship work focuses on a new dance/movement piece inspired by the score, called "stück 1998," written by Swiss composer Manfred Werder. 

Made possible in part through the support of the Links Hall Commissioning Collective.

Co-MISSIONS Fellowship Showcase
Two Co-MISSION Fellows are selected annually by Links Hall's Programing Committee. These commissions are the highest dollar and resource awards offered by Links Hall annually. They are granted to individual artists who are based in Chicago and have received significant recognition and/or accolades for their creative work over the course of their careers. The program is specifically designed to partner with established artists who have already completed the initial research and development phase of a new work and are looking for intensive support around the completion and premiere of a new project.
