Artist Resource Community (ARC) Chicago

Artist Resource Community (ARC) Chicago is an artist-owned, cooperatively-run organization based in Chicago, Illinois, designed to provide resources for artists, specifically artists in disenfranchised communities, so they may choose art as a viable career path and make a liveable wage. ARC Chicago offers artists equipment, knowledge, networks, and opportunities to continue making art. Through the 2020 Grant & Loan Fund for Early-Stage Arts, Creative, and Cultural Cooperatives, AmbitioUS is providing ARC Chicago with a one-year general operating support grant, technical assistance from Uptima Entrepreneur Cooperative, and a loan product from Seed Commons.
