Artspace Immersion: Chicago (2022)

Helping turn big ideas into achievable plans


Artspace Immersion in Chicago!


Artspace Immersion: Chicago is a cohort program designed to support organizations that are planning for a space-related project, by helping them navigate the real estate process. In November 2021, Artspace welcomed 10 creative organizations from Chicago, Illinois into the 12-month program.


Designed for nonprofits in the planning stages of a space-related project, this cohort program brings together the people, tools, and access to resources that advance projects big and small. Organizations don't just work toward creating their own vibrant space, but they also join a learning community to practice telling their story, build partnerships and connect their work to broader discussions of community development and social justice.
