Your ticket purchase will support the important and life changing work of Firebird Community Arts: 

Each year, Firebird serves 60 to 75 youth from the south and west sides of Chicago.  Through the healing practices of glassblowing and ceramics, combined with mental health support, employment, and mentorship, Firebird helps individuals recover from trauma. Lives are changed through the community support and creative expression participants engage in at Firebird-- 83% of participants report having bigger goals and higher expectations for themselves as a result of Firebird programs. 

As an organization, Firebird is always experimenting, pushing and resisting traditional structures that are inequitable to find policies and practices that are more inclusive and sustain more equitable outcomes. In fact, other organizations and foundations nationwide are now turning to Firebird for guidance and as a leader in the field.
