Monarch Art + Wellness is an annual summer fair that celebrates women, femme, and gender non-binary artists, healers, and small businesses in Chicago. Over the course of two days, the fair presents 30 local vendors and offers a roster of public programs throughout the city on physical, mental, spiritual and sexual wellness.
Monarch aims to bridge the gap between art and wellness through its diverse programming. Its rich network also functions as a collaborative project providing local healing resources for women, gender non-binary and femme identifying communities and people of color. Monarch serves to establish a dynamic, intersecting network among Chicago creatives through interactive events and spaces for healing, honesty, and reflection.
