“Chicago Kaleidoscopes” is an After School Matters program that looks at key aspects of Chicago’s identity via creative writing. Apprentices in the “Chicago Kaleidoscopes” program look through Chicago-centric lenses of writing, music, visual art, sports, history and the sciences as they critically think about the world they live in; then they combine their critical observations of those source materials with their creativity through poetry, short fiction, and other literary genres (prose poetry, etc.). Apprentices learn key marketable skills such as listening to their peers, writing clearly, communicating persuasively, and sharing and receiving feedback on their work, while learning more about how their personal identities resonate with aspects of Chicago’s identity.
