INQUIRIES

The LookOut team is always interested in seeing new work and meeting artists; inquiries and invitations to see work are welcome and can be directed to lookout@steppenwolf.org. As a multidisciplinary performance series, we are primarily interested in connecting with Chicago-based artists who have an existing body of presentable work. We are particularly interested in offering a platform to artists representing historically marginalized communities and programming work that incorporates diversity across genre, form, and perspective. Please note that we do not accept unsolicited full-length scripts.
