CAPE: Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education engages students, inspires teachers, and demonstrates impact by weaving visual, digital, and performing arts into classrooms across Chicago. As school budgets are slashed, principals and school communities are forced to make ever harder decisions about resources they can offer to their students and the training and support they can offer to their teaching staff, and art education funding is often first on the chopping block. CAPE’s students, teachers, and schools do not pay for our services! To ensure no school ever has to choose between CAPE and another external partnership, a field trip, or even a staff position, our programs are fully funded by grants and individuals like you who understand the importance of art education in our classrooms.

CAPE inspires students’ passion for learning by bringing arts education to life through original, creative lessons, developed by artists and schoolteachers, leading to improved grades and confidence.

Joke at the Oak was started December 12, 2018 as an open mic to give rising comedians a chance to compete for featured, and headlining sets every Wednesday and to participate in our monthly charity Friday night showcases. Our goal is to raise $100,000 for local charities through comedy.

Our Host Pat Treuer: Pat, Colorado raised, started doing stand up when he was a young man at 23. After his first show he knew that comedy and making lives better one laugh at a time was his true dream. As a young comedian there was one show that didn’t go quite as well and left him feeling discouraged and doubting himself. At that point he chose to walk down the path of corporate life. After 13 years of working for money instead of happiness he realized something was missing. It was time to get back on the horse, and back to doing what he loves. Pat decided to quit his job and put everything he has into his dream, being a comedian. Knowing the struggle for up and comers, he was inspired to start his own weekly show at his favorite bar in Chicago, The Irish Oak. He has since then encouraged and inspired many new comedians to not be afraid to follow their dreams. Not only is Pat genuine and kind, he is pretty hilarious. Every week Joke at the Oak gets better and better, and every week another funny human with a dream gets the confidence to do what they love.
