Consortiums provide donors with an opportunity to make a direct contribution to an initiative of particular resonance.


Lookingglass productions, and the artists who create them, are developed through a unique initiative called gglassworks. This initiative provides resources required to explore the material through various specific forms of performative expression, as dictated by the needs of the story. 


Using the Lookingglass core values of collaboration, transformation, and invention, Lookingglass provides underserved students with unique engaging arts education opportunities that increase confidence and academic motivation through in- and after-school artist residencies, the Student Matinee Workshop Program, and professional development workshops for classroom teachers.


Your gift supports an artistically excellent project that contributes to the rich civic life of Chicago. Contributions to Production Consortiums provide financial resources and support to the specifically selected production.
