Center for Performing Arts
For the fifth straight year, The Chicago Community Trust is supporting the work of Governors State University’s Center for Performing Arts. The grant awarded this season for $50,000 will be used towards GSU Center’s “Made in Chicago” series, which brings the best in Chicago-area live performance to local audiences in the Southland region.
Through this support, the Center for Performing Arts will introduce its audiences to Chicago-based theatre, dance, and musical ensemble companies and develop new audiences through collaboration with diverse arts organizations. The series is designed to increase attendance from underserved communities, increase theater participation by minority populations, and increase the number of first-time attendees.
