The multi-year initiative annually selects a cohort of Chicago based artists and activists who develop projects aimed at solving community-identified problems and facilitating change.
The Alice and CPCP have established a multi-year partnership to develop a greater local capacity for arts-based community-led transformation. We believe in creative strategies to problem-solve, build intersectional coalitions and envision inclusive futures. Our work supports and increases community organizations’ ability to imagine and collaborate towards racially equitable and economically just communities.
NOURISH leverages engaged artistic practice to mobilize:
- The capacity of artists – particularly artists of underrepresented communities– to work with non-arts partners to collaborate on solving community identified problems.
- New approaches for grassroots and community workers (independent or org-based) in leadership development, community organizing, and organization and movement sustainability
- The capacity of classroom teachers to build community and bring creative social justice pedagogy into their teaching spaces.
