Center for Performing Arts


For the second straight year, The Chicago Community Trust has awarded a $50,000 grant to Governors State University Center for Performing Arts. The grant will be used to support GSU Center’s “One More Night” series, which brings the best in Chicago-area live performance to local audiences in the Southland region served by Governors State University.

Under the terms of the grant, the Center for Performing Arts will introduce its audiences to Chicago-based theater, dance, and musical ensemble companies and develop new audiences through collaboration with diverse arts organizations. “One More Night” is designed to increase attendance from underserved communities, increase theater participation by minority populations, and increase the number of first-time attendees.
