Thank you for investing in Chicago’s students.


On Tuesday, June 14, Ingenuity celebrated 11 years of driving systems-level change for Chicago’s arts education sector. In partnership with Chicago Public Schools (CPS), arts educators, local arts organizations, and arts education investors, we are collectively transforming arts education for 330,000 K-12 CPS students and 642 schools.
