Monthly Game Jams
Teaching Artist Training
As an ideas exchange for the teaching artist community (and—let's be honest—an excuse to play!), we're hosting a monthly Game Jam!
Each month, one awesome teaching artist will share their creative favorites with you at the Compass Creative Dramatics space right off the Irving Park Brown Line.
Each Game Jam is pay-what-you-can, and 100% of the donations received will go to the teaching artist leading that month's Jam. If you're looking for a specific amount, and it fits in your budget, we'd suggest $5. This structure helps us:
We hope that these monthly events will be a great resource to Chicago teaching artists—a space to learn, reflect, and build community.
Can't wait to jam with you!

Teacher Training Program Open to the Public
For the past five years, we've been developing a teaching artist training program to help shape our team of traveling educators. And pretty soon, we'll be sharing those resources with all teaching artists—whether you're interested in being part of the Compass team or not.
It's our goal to help teaching artists of all levels "level up" for the benefit of students in Chicago and across the US.
