Audience Architects, Flyspace and Chicago Artists Coalition work to bring new audiences to dance and art through collaboration.

Right Now
With recent funding awarded by The Joyce Foundation, CAR has begun an embedding initiative within different arts organizations around the city. This project aims to increase audience diversity by expanding the CAR website to be a primary educational, outreach and connecting tool.
Current placements include 826CHI, a writing and tutoring center in Wicker Park, the American Rhythm Center, a consortium of dance companies in the Loop, and Washington Park Arts Incubator: artist studios, arts education, community projects & exhibits on the South Side.
