The Chicago Center for Arts & Technology is focused on the power of unifying communities, the connection between art and technology, and the benefits of engaging and teaching in an inspirational and beautiful environment.
CHICAT aims to uplift the North Lawndale, Little Village, and Pilsen neighborhoods while simultaneously embracing the culture and values of the communities that live there. This symbiosis enables CHICAT to be more than a place for accessing education and employment. Rather, CHICAT is a movement and a center for meaningful change and progress in individuals and in our society.
CHICAT opened its doors in Spring, 2017 to offer life-affirming, after-school arts and technology education for students and innovative vocational training for adults. The association is fueled by creativity, innovation, and the passion to leverage community strengths, interests, and wisdom.
