Connecting Artists from Different Networks

Artists Community Education Performance Youth

Jeremy sees his own artistic community represented at the MCA and is able to expose young people to that community, along with world-renowned artists.

I get to see my peers, people that I know, artists in the community have access to the MCA as a platform through the Tuesday evening programs. And then I've got to expose young people to that, as well.

It shows them that they can share the stage with the – with those international, world-renowned artists. And that the MCA as a Chicago institution values those things equally. If they value local artists with their programming and likewise commits to showing world-class artists, it sort of collapses the distinction between those two things. And that is an inspiring thing, I think, for young people and adults alike.
