HUMBOLDT PARK — Neighbors will soon get a chance to weigh in on the future of the Humboldt Park field house at a pair of workshops aimed at strengthening the cultural center and its programming.

The first workshop is set for 6:30-9 p.m. Dec. 10 and the second is tentatively scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17. Both will held at the field house at 1440 N. Humboldt Dr.

The two workshops are being put on by the Chicago Park District as part of a larger citywide program, called Re:Center.

The program launched in 2015 in an effort to strengthen park district-run cultural centers across the city.

Under the program, the park district brings together residents, artists and park staff to “reimagine cultural priorities and programming that speak to the interests of each neighborhood,” according to the program’s website.

The Humboldt Park field house is one of 15 cultural centers to go through the process, according to Chicago Park District spokeswoman Irene Tostado.

Those who attend the workshops will be asked to weigh in on how the field house is currently run and identify room for improvement, Tostado said. The participants will then break into small groups to discuss and make suggestions.

“The goal is to share ideas and identify cultural priorities for Humboldt Park and the community that it serves as well as to inform future cultural planning at the cultural center,” Tostado said in an email.
