GIRL TALK!

1000 N. Milwaukee Ave., 4th floor, Chicago IL

Girl Talk is a volunteer supported program for girls, ages 12-17, who are detained in the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center (JTDC). A survey of the girls, conducted by CFJC, found that they faced serious concerns on a daily basis, including sexual assault and other forms of violence, relationship and conflict resolution, education and employment, legal rights, and a wide range of health issues. Programming and services related to these issues were almost non-existent through the detention center.

Girl talk provides the girls in the detention center a space to be free from the jail they find themselves in.

Quennect 4 Gallery Chicago is a collaborative effort to maintain a dedicated cultural and activist center focused on community involvement through arts and grassroots actions.

We are an independently-run alternative multi use art space that supports the intersection of social, political, economical and geographic communities. It focuses on diversity and giving back to the community and its very existence is a testament to the necessity of a multilateral vision in the process of cultural (r)evolution.

Located in Wicker Park and head quartered at Multikulti Chicago we have been working to create and foster the community connections to our city through diverse and innovative arts and culture events and benefits.
