Join us for the daytime portion of Echoes of Chicago’s annual Youth and the Arts themed event: It Takes A Village (Early Bird Session)! Celebrate the connections between the arts, creativity, and youth empowerment. 100% of profits benefit Kuumba Lynx  & Universidad Popular. Donations appreciated.

The beauty of this event will be the intermingling of youth art created over several generations.

The Early Bird Session is catered to youth and their families, but we encourage all to come and support young people using creativity to express themselves! After that, please stick around for the remainder of It Takes A Village during our Evening Session, from 7pm-1am.

Saturday June 22, 2013. 2pm-6pm.
1812 W. Hubbard (use East-most door)

Enjoy: Displayed art, live art, live music, live performances, an arts and crafts table, a free photo booth, face painting, button making, Echoes’ merchandise & hand-painted hats, and more…
