Workshops Community Partnership Request Form
Thanks for your interest in a partnership with 826CHI! In your request, please describe how 826CHI could enhance a writing project or collaborate with your community-based organization to bring a writing workshop to your youth. Requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Due to high demand and limited capacity, we can only take on a few partnerships per season. However, we encourage you to apply regardless and we'll keep you in mind for future projects. If you have any questions, please contact

Our registration approach supports our mission of expanding arts access and equity across the city of Chicago.

The 826CHI team will carefully evaluate each application and select partners and organizations that align with our priority enrollment criteria, which prioritizes schools and organizations with a low number of existing arts partnerships, as well as youth that identify as English Language Learners and families that identify as low-income.
