Urban Gateways programs are led by professional artists in dance, literary arts, media arts, music, theater, and visual arts.

By connecting Chicago-area youth, their teachers, families, and communities with professional artists, we encourage self-expression as a vital component in creating inspired lives, vibrant environments, and lasting social change.

Programs Include:
