Consensus is an arts-based peacebuilding organization from the south side of Chicago that helps people connect, create, & cultivate.
We have received 501c3 fiscal sponsorship from Good City Chicago as well as Fractured Atlas.
We aim to build peace by fostering collaboration among artists & human service projects, especially for marginalized youth. Our programs, events, & outreach mobilize the arts to prevent violence, transform conflict, & promote healing.
We see space for its potential as an open, inspiring environment where talents become gifts to the community. The more we spread this vision, the more creative altruism will harmonize the moral imaginations of Chicago & beyond.
We believe compassion, respect, generosity, & spirituality are most powerful when expressed creatively. We activate this power through cross-sector partnerships, community feedback, & academic insight.
