Creating Art, Creating Change

Many of Chicago's youth and communities have been significantly impacted by reductions in school funding and social services, extreme levels of violence and crime, a lack of college and career opportunities, high incarceration and unemployment rates, and many other challenges. Within these affected communities, civic leaders, social service and non-profit agencies, community development groups, donors, small businesses, artists, educators, and residents are working to build a brighter future. The arts are increasingly leveraged in new and creative ways to support academic achievement, economic development, workforce training, social justice, civic engagement, and lifelong learning.

Urban Gateways is responding to these challenges with the guiding principle of Creating Art, Creating Change. The organization is empowering youth to become the agents of change in their own lives and communities. Urban Gateways offers multidisciplinary arts experiences that expand access, provide youth with safe spaces, give youth voices a platform, and seek to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. These arts programs engage youth in activities that build essential skills necessary to succeed in life such as creativity, collaboration, problem solving, innovation, and positive risk-taking.
