At CRE8 Space
Our mission is to combat the heartbreaking issue of gun violence and death among young BIPOC individuals in Chicago. We firmly believe that providing meaningful opportunities and creative outlets is a powerful way to address this urgent problem. Through our innovative 12 week fashion design program, youth will learn how to sew, create a garment, and build a business from scratch. We believe in providing a lifeline, fostering diverse leadership within our communities and equipping young individuals with essential fashion entrepreneurial skills that will shape their lives and pave the way to a brighter future.
Why CRE8 Space Matters
Creating a Safe Haven
In communities grappling with gun violence, it is crucial to provide alternatives and outlets that divert young individuals' attention towards constructive endeavors. CRE8 Space offers a nurturing and inclusive environment where participants can find solace, discover their passions, and engage in creative expression. By offering a positive and supportive space, we aim to reduce the risk of violence and create a haven for personal growth.
Fostering Diverse Leadership:
We believe that diverse leadership is essential for building strong, resilient communities. CRE8 Space is committed to cultivating leadership skills among our participants, encouraging them to explore their creative potential and develop their entrepreneurial spirit. By empowering young individuals with the necessary tools and knowledge, we create a pipeline of capable leaders who will drive positive change within their communities.
Our program goes beyond artistic training. Through a combination of entrepreneurship skills and sewing expertise, we equip participants with practical abilities that will serve them throughout their lives. By learning to create garments from scratch, participants gain valuable skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, attention to detail, and perseverance. These skills not only enable them to pursue a career in the fashion industry but also instill a sense of self-reliance and resilience that transcends their creative pursuits.
Nurturing Dreams and Aspirations
CRE8 Space is more than a program; it is a gateway to endless possibilities. By providing participants with the means to turn their artistic visions into reality, we inspire them to dream big and pursue their aspirations fearlessly. By nurturing their creative talents, we instill a sense of purpose and self-belief, empowering them to shape their own destiny and become the architects of their success.
