Thursday, August 14th at the Chicago Cultural Center, from 11am - 4pm.
CCOL’s Destination: Chicago - Summer Showcase is a three-part event that will recognize their achievements and expose them to other opportunities.
1) The Maker Party will be held from 11am until 2:45pm. CCOL partner organizations will host a variety of maker stations, where instructors and youth who have taken their programs can walk attendees through hands-on activities.
2) The Gallery will display the work of youth who have participated in summer programs held by CCOL partner organizations citywide. Lasting from 11am until 2:45pm, it will resemble a science fair, but the artifacts exhibited will reflect learning that has happened in several different areas of interest.
3) The Performance Series will be held from 3 to 4pm. Youth who have gained performance skills over the summer through programs offered by CCOL organizations will let them shine on stage with dance, spoken word, music, a fashion show and more.
