Our April grant goes to the good folks who are organizing this awesome day-long festival of community teaching and learning in Chicago neighborhoods.
Learnapalooza invites amateur and professional teachers, businesses, and local organizations to host free workshops on a topic of their choosing. Anyone who has something to share (and basically we all do) can offer a class during the day-long festival.
The classes take place in spaces all around a neighborhood, soaking the community
in exciting learning. The organizers take care of all of the class logistics.
Learnapalooza started two years ago in Wicker Park, and this year it’s expanding to two new neighborhoods in Chicago. That first year 350 strangers showed at 17
places across Wicker Park to learn new things and it’s only been getting bigger.
