Rebuild Foundation - Annual Open House - Saturday, October 15th from 12-2pm / Address: 6916 S Dorchester Ave, Chicago, IL 60637
Rebuild Foundation, a not-for-profit creative engine focused on cultural-driven redevelopment and affordable space initiatives in under-resourced communities, currently manages projects in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood of Chicago. Our programs enlist teams of artists, architects, developers, educators, community activists, and residents who work together to integrate the arts, apprenticeship trade training and creative entrepreneurship into a community-driven process of neighborhood transformation.
