We are looking for youth to distribute flyers and ask survey questions in the area of North Lawndale and Little Village near the Kedzie stop on Pink line. Training is provided. The survey is about a project for residents improving the area with the arts, attracting businesses, and building a resource center.
We are also looking for youth to help plan and implement an ArtWalk in this same area. Training provided. Please contact for more info.
Chicago URBAN ART RETREAT Center (CUARC) provides guestrooms for women travelers. CUARC also provides safe space for people who are different from each other to enjoy & learn from each other. CUARC celebrates multiculturalism, diversity, and non-violence. We provide opportunities for people to learn about and practice peace. We encourage our volunteers to learn about social justice issues and the isms to spread this information to others.
In addition to a women's residence on the second floor, we offer an art gallery for under-represented artists, and art studio for non-artists. CUARC offers a variety of programs geared to the under represented and to educate the public about under represented populations. At our own site and at sites of other non-profits, CUARC programs include: art workshops & classes for non-artists, support & education for entrepreneurs, art shows by under represented people (people with mental illnesses, people of color, non-artists, survivors of trauma, immigrants, lesbians, gays, & seniors). Social opps. for people who are different from each other to attend, enjoy each other, and learn from each other are offered monthly. Non-violence and tolerance is encouraged at all activities.
