ID : 963   
« back to classes page
CourseGraphic Creative arts have the power to stir the soul, and even to alter beliefs and attitudes.  Can the arts also be used as a means to bring about social change? Chicago is home to many arts organizations, a number of which focus on bringing multi-media and written word creation to different sectors of the population in order to foster social change. Using urban interventions for youth and adults, arts organizations are finding myriad creative ways to engage the community to make significant and positive impact in the city. In this 7-week study group, speakers from a collection of organizations working in Chicago neighborhoods and with underserved populations will present their social outreach missions, blending culture and community to transform lives through artistic creation. Join us as we hear from representatives of the arts community who work with some of our neediest populations and visit a sampling of these exemplary organizations up close. Volunteer opportunities for these organizations may be identified.
