We are a community and it takes a village to make anything happen.

Take a look at our past, present and future partners. 

2021

They are partnering with us on our next season for a devised play centered around young adults and their experience with quarantine.

Their Mission: 

Circles & Ciphers is a hip-hop infused restorative justice organization led by and for young people impacted by violence. Through art-based peace circles, education, and direct action we collectively heal and work to bring about the abolition of the prison-industrial complex.

2020 

They partnered with us on our very first project The Racial Baptism Series. We were able to raise $600, half of which went to them to continue their amazing work.

Their Mission: 

The Chicago Community Bond Fund (CCBF) pays bond for people charged with crimes in Cook County, Illinois. Through a revolving fund, CCBF supports individuals whose communities cannot afford to pay the bonds themselves and who have been impacted by structural violence. Inability to pay bond results in higher rates of conviction, longer sentences, loss of housing and jobs, separation of families, and lost custody of children. By paying bond, CCBF restores the presumption of innocence before trial and enables recipients to remain free while fighting their cases. CCBF also engages in public education about the role of bond in the criminal legal system and advocates for the abolition of money bond. CCBF is committed to long-term relationship building and organizing with people most directly impacted by criminalization and policing.

They partnered with us as a guest speaker. Shaniqua Ford, CEO and lead therapist, joined our talkback for Black Magic about mental health in the black community.

Their Mission: 

We specialize in soul healing; grief & loss, rebuilding hope, accessing & activating the resiliency in our DNA to build deeper bonds with self and community. Here at Soul Werk, we work to equip you with simple tools to engage in effective interdependent healing. 

Our purpose at Soul Werk is to help you remember your own intuitive knowing, cultivate self-trust, & understand your connection to ancestral power to heal and create the fulfilling powerful life you deserve!
