The Remix Project

The Remix Project is a 501(c)(3) charity that functions as an alternative art school for inner-city youth and young people from underserved communities (16-24) to pursue their artistic ambitions. Our mission is to remove barriers and provide access to resources, shining a light on the vast untapped creative potential amongst Chicago’s youth while building pathways to sustainable careers within creative industries for our alumni network. The Remix Project was created in order to help level the playing field for young people from disadvantaged, marginalized and under served communities. Our programs and services serve youth who are trying to enter into the creative industries or further their formal education. The Remix Project provides top-notch alternative, creative, educational programs, facilitators and facilities. Our mission is to help refine the raw talents of young people in order to help them find success as participants define it and on their own terms.
