SUPPORT MAKING BRONZEVILLE SUMMER NIGHTS BIGGER AND BETTER IN 2016 FOR GIVING TUESDAY

Since 2012, Bronzeville Nights has been an event series that has enhanced our community’s creative climate by celebrating the marriage of arts, music, good food and great shopping. In 2015, with the intent of combining creative resources, Quad Communities Development Corporation with the support of the Chicago Community Trust, entered into a collaborative partnership with the Bronzeville Art District. As a result, we were able to update the Bronzeville Nights and Bronzeville Trolley Tour brand to create the Bronzeville Summer Nights experience.  What’s more, our partnership has expanded the level of engagement to over 7,000 people across the City of Chicago, facilitated productive collaborations with over 50 entities engaged in the art, business and cultural community, and showcased local performing artists and exhibitors. Bronzeville Summer Nights is building a brand that highlights the best of Bronzeville and its surrounding neighborhoods so that guests are encouraged to visit year-round.

Whatever your passions are, an investment in historical Bronzeville is a rich contribution to a social and economic climate that thrives on our artistic character and legacy.  Choosing to support Bronzeville Summer Nights, puts you at the forefront of building upon the ambition and evolution of Bronzeville.

Quad Communities Development Corporation is proud to be a partner in bringing this event series to life.

A new Walmart and 96 stylish mixed-income apartments now quicken the pulse of Bronzeville’s still-beating commercial heart.
