Literature Emitting Diodes was made possible by a grant from the Chicago chapter of the Awesome Foundation, so we were so excited to join other grantees and trustees to celebrate their 5th anniversary last night.
We also had an opportunity to win a grant extension through a quick pitch on stage and then a round of questions and live voting. We didn’t get the extension, but we had a great time hearing about all the other projects. It was incredibly inspiring to see what can happen when the community comes together to support creative interventions in the everyday.
Take some time to look through the Chicago Awesome Foundation’s website and see some of the other recent/ongoing projects – there are some fantastic things going on right here in the second city!
