Proud to be an Arts Partner in a landmark Chicago park
Free Street’s headquarters are located in the historic Pulaski Park building, which has been serving the West Town community and beyond since 1912. We love being a Chicago Arts Partner, and part of such a vibrant neighborhood institution. We also operate the Storyfront, a satellite site in Back of the Yards.
50 Years of Free Street
Since 1969, Free Street has been a necessary innovator in Chicago, seeking out new and effective ways to challenge racial and economic segregation through the arts.
