About Chester Made
Chester Made is a humanities-based initiative to recognize and promote arts and culture in Chester and harness their power as a force for community revitalization. The Chester Made Exploration Zone and new pop-up makerspace at 511 Avenue of the States form a creative, cultural hub in the heart of the historic arts and culture district that gives community members the chance to engage with one another, learn more about the city’s cultural assets and history, rebuild their downtown, and change perceptions about Chester. Partners include the City of Chester, The Artist Warehouse, Widener University, The Public Workshop, and Pennsylvania Humanities Council. Major funding by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage and the National Endowment for the Arts. Follow us on Facebook @ChesterMadePA.
