Ballroom Scrub Down with The Collective Cleaners
The Collective Cleaners, a Chicago social practice collaborative, held a cleaning and live music event at Ballroom Projects to help prepare the space for the wedding of Nicholas Davis and Rebecca Elliott.
Scrub Downs are social gatherings where cleaning becomes both a celebration and a gesture of care towards a shared space. Scrub Downs are festive, experimental, and leave a place cleaner than before. To learn more about Scrub Downs and The Collective cleaners, visit http://collectivecleaners.com/
