Hi, I’m Lauren.
I am an arts administrator and community advocate living in Albany Park.
I believe that activity - action and energy, showing up, listening first and responding second - makes our neighborhoods stronger, safer, and more dynamic.
We all have a responsibility to do our part.
How I got Here:
I moved to Albany Park in June 2016 and signed a one-year lease. With graduate school applications filling my spare time, I only imagined spending a year in Albany Park. By Fall 2017, I expected to be buying text books again.
Then, November 2016 happened, and my world shifted and all future plans changed.
