Red Line Service creates cultural experiences for and with Chicagoans concerned about and/or currently in transition. We use the word transition to affirm that homelessness is a temporary set of circumstances and not a state of being.
Collectively, we insist and demonstrate that communal artistic and intellectual enrichment awakens imaginative possibilities in all people, encouraging them to envision, aspire to, and build alternative realities. In partnership with organizations providing direct services (Chicago Help Initiative) and those advocating for policy development (Chicago Coalition for the Homeless), we strive to open and expand critical dialogues about poverty, social responsibility, and culture. We strive to stimulate growth and change for all program participants, those in transition as well as their housed counterparts, and to transform the cultural institutions that house our programs.
