Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Fund Raising & Fund Distribution, Performing Arts Centers

Mission: It is the mission, duty and purpose of Casting Call Performance Arts Community Center to provide art education to youth ages five to seventeen within the Chicago Southland area. Performing arts instruction provided will include but will not be limited to instrument, dance, theater, spoken word poetry and voice. Casting Call Performing Arts Community Center is designed to eliminate social and financial barriers and provide opportunity for youth to receive creative art instruction which is proven to be beneficial to social engagement, brain and educational development for children. The Casting Call Performing Arts Community Center will also introduce and encourage creative art instruction to children on the south side of Chicago and southern suburbs where there is limited access for children. The Casting Call Performing Arts Community Center will provide quality and affordable creative art instruction to youth. Additionally, the daily programs will provide children with something constructive to do with their time and keep them off the street and out of harm’s way. The children will be able to channel their energy positively by expressing themselves through art and education while enhancing and developing their minds.

Results: As of 2016, we have shown many students that they can believe in themselves and express themselves through the arts. From ages 5 years old to 17, each child has learned drama techniques that included expressing emotions and improvisation. Students were also instructed in dance and vocal. During the school season, along with three other organizations, we supplied over 100 school aged children with book bags filled with supplies to demonstrate to them that if they start off school the right way, they will continue on the right path throughout the year.

Target demographics: To encourage and nurture the arts through drama, music, dance that is within each student.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 100 students

Geographic areas served: The Chicago and South Suburban areas

Programs: At Casting Call Performing Arts Community Center, children will be given the opportunity to express themselves creatively through music, dance and theater.
