As a catalyst for social justice and neighborhood transformation, Equity Arts will protect the creative and public use of a historic artists-run property, in perpetuity. Centered within an equity framework, the building will offer community arts programming, affordable space, and support for BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) artists, leaders and community members. This new structure will create a regenerative arts community that celebrates Chicago’s culture, and is open and accessible to all.
