Northside Southside Oneside will help establish and grow new roots for CHRP’s Mayfair Arts Center so that over time it can:

1) provide rental subsidies for independent artists and other small to midsize dance and music companies based on the South Side.

2) introduce the new MAC to children, teens, adults, and elders from Calumet Heights and surrounding neighborhoods so that they can engage in lifelong learning opportunities and earn the health and wellness benefits accrued through participation in the arts.

3) be an economic development center for the South Side by helping independent artists and small companies generate streams of earned income.

4) continue to refine and share this model of collective artistic practice, economic development, and peaceful coexistence.
