Evoke the Future: Gallery and Community Center

Donation protected
In the vibrant heart of Chicago, a dream is coming to life: Evoke, a 4,000 sq. ft. oasis of creativity and empowerment. Founded by Hex and Fabian, Evoke is not just a space, but a movement, born from the resilience and passion of the Black and Latino queer communities. This journey, marked by challenges and triumphs, reflects our unwavering commitment to create a sanctuary where art and inclusivity flourish.

Our vision for Evoke is ambitious and heartfelt. We envision art workshops that are more than learning sessions - they're soulful gatherings where diverse voices are heard and validated. Our events will not just entertain, but also enlighten, uniting people from all walks of life in a shared experience of beauty and understanding.

This fundraiser is made with the intention of helping Evoke accomplish the following goals:
Create and build infrastructure (modular walls, furniture, construction materials)
Purchase lighting and sound equipment
Assist in our rent payment

Your support is crucial in bringing this vision to life. It's a chance to be part of something transformative - a community space where every individual, regardless of their background, feels seen, heard, and inspired. Evoke is more than a place; it's a promise of a brighter, more inclusive future. Join us in this journey of change and empowerment. Together, we can make Evoke a beacon of hope and creativity, a place where every heart finds its rhythm, and every dream finds its wings.

Evoke, our dream in Chicago, is on the cusp of reality, and your funding can make all the difference. Every contribution helps transform our 4,000 sq. ft. warehouse into a vibrant sanctuary of art and community. Your support will enable us to equip the space with essential art materials, sound and lighting systems for events, and comfortable, welcoming furnishings. It will also fund community outreach programs, empowering workshops, and collaborative projects that celebrate diversity and inclusivity. Investing in Evoke is investing in a community's heart and soul, where every story is honored, every voice amplified, and every dream nurtured. Your generosity brings us one step closer to a shared vision of unity, creativity, and empowerment.
