The Gotta E.A.T.( Entertain and Teach) Project, established in 2009, is dedicated to fostering and enabling the urban arts in Chicago. Focused on the youth on the Near North Side of Chicago, Gotta E.A.T.’s goal is to ensure the opportunity for young artist to enhance their creativity while creating the opportunity to showcase their creative endeavors throughout the city.
In conjunction with established NPO’s, Gotta E.A.T. serves as a lower-level foundation in making creative resources like computer hardware and design software accessible to children who would not otherwise reap such exposure. Along with encouraging the performance arts through Hip-Hop and R&B, Gotta E.A.T. also works to advance local fashion designers by showcasing their works and promoting opportunities for merchandising.
