North Lawndale

Resources Guide

In collaboration with The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and Amanda Fuson, this resources guidebook aims to provide Chicago’s North Lawndale residents vital information to expand their entrepreneurial businesses.

Initial research:

Our primary goal was to design an asset for and underserved and exploited neighborhood.

Surveys were posted at local community centers and churches to gauge how the stakeholders live their everyday lives.

We then built a map of integral community leaders and pre-existing organizations to inform our research and provide overall direction for the project.
