Just last week, on May 16, CCRx participated in a citywide gathering, The Chicago Community Trust's annual On the Table. With shared meals and conversations, On the Table events are "designed to elevate civic conversation, foster new relationships and inspire collaborative action across the region" -- and inspire it did! Partnering with our hosts, Envision Unlimited, CCRx welcomed professionals from all areas of Chicago who are interested in creative reuse and how it can empower educators and artists. The night included DIY nametags (with prizes for the most outlandish), a Circle Swap (a preview of our summer programming), and best of all was a delicious meal prepared by some of the Envision Unlimited team. We can't thank our cohort enough for the great ideas and valuable feedback.

Would you like to be part of the conversation? Connect with us at creativechirx@gmail.com to talk about creative reuse in your community.

If you haven't watched one of Skillshare's addictive how-to videos yet, you certainly will soon. Their educational clips range from "get better at storytelling" to "wire calligraphy" and everything in between. With a Facebook page full of free tips and guides, Skillshare is arming the masses with the ability to make and create on their own time and in their own way. Interested in taking it to the next level? Check out Skillshare's online subscription classes for more advanced skills. And if you have skills to share (we know you do...) you can sign up to be a Skillshare teacher as well.

While online craft and how-to videos are nothing new, Skillshare's online is bringing a level of empowerment to their platform by galvanizing people's creative expertise and giving them a place to showcase it to the world. Plus, they have some stellar creative reuse ideas!
