Thanks to consistent funding of successful programs from people and organizations, CAPE has sustained the development and cultivation of teacher and teaching artists partnerships for almost 30 years. No CAPE schools pay for these services, and CAPE makes it a priority to partner with schools that struggle to provide arts for their students and training for their teachers.

Partnerships Across Chicago

Our partnerships are reaching Chicago area Public Schools all across the city during this 2022-2023 school year. Our professional development sessions bring together teachers and artists from many different neighborhoods to foster camaraderie, build respect among the educators, and share best practices.
