Founded in 2003, KIPP Chicago Schools began with a single class of fifth graders at KIPP Ascend Middle School. Today, KIPP Chicago Schools consists of six schools: KIPP Ascend Primary, KIPP Ascend Middle, KIPP Bloom College Prep, KIPP Create College Prep, KIPP One Primary, and KIPP One Academy. Together, KIPP Chicago School serves over 1,600 students in grades K-8. and also supports over 700 KIPP alumni currently in high school or college through its KIPP Through College program.

In 2016, KIPP Chicago, moved their regional office into a new office space in the Chicago Arts District with intentions to use it as a multi-purpose space that would function as a gallery and coworking space with a mission and purpose of acting as a social justice platform to showcase artwork from students and artists.

We worked with KIPP Chicago to develop a unique concept of creating a children’s museum focused on art and social justice issues. The concept was refined in collaboration with the KIPP Chicago team, and the Children’s Museum of Art and Social Justice (CMASJ) was established to be an innovative museum where the public can experience contemporary art created by Chicago youth alongside working international artists with a dedication to highlighting civil and social/human rights issues.

The goals and objectives for this project is to provide assistance in curating, planning, and organizing exhibitions. Provide  event documentation, marketing & branding support, and partnership development in order to build audience and attain funding support for the children of Chicago,
