The Free Street Theatre Approach


In 2019, Free Street began work on a Cultural Asset Mapping Project. We invite you to explore the documentation of the performing arts and culture in Back of the Yards, Brighton Park, Englewood, Gage Park, and McKinley Park. This project is proudly commissioned by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the League of Chicago Theaters.

Although the project is ongoing, all of the information gathered thus far through surveys, workshops, and interviews can be found on the Culture Makers Map. Take a look!
