Thanks to the support of our donors, CAPE is excited to announce the roster of Artist/Researcher Partners for the 2022-2023 school year. These are the long-time in-school, collaborative teams who will continue their journey in expanding their work in arts-integration.

This year, teacher and teaching artist teams and their students will explore ideas
around shared community spaces through public art installations, learn about simple machines
through performance and movement, and investigate the connections between food and
culture, to name a few of the artistic inquiries. The thirty teams represent sixteen K-12 Chicago
public schools located in fifteen unique communities throughout city.
