To become Chicago’s premiere design education initiative dedicated to ensuring “design inclusion” on all realms of design.
The mission of Project Osmosis is to create programs and initiatives that identify, develop, and support young people from minority communities with demonstrated abilities and skills in the applied arts. Through these efforts, our intention is to increase the influence and presence of art/design professionals from minority communities while expanding the reach of artistic expression for all people. Our ultimate goal is to develop an interdependent exchange of artist/cultural expression that includes and values the contributions of artist from all communities, regardless of gender, race, or socio-economic status. For art/design, in its highest and purest form, must be without barriers, borders or boundaries.
Our values allows Osmosis as an organization to reach artists where they dream to help them express themselves in their greatest light. We invite artists from all walks and stages of life to participate in a community of teachers, mentors, and friends to engage in the ever evolving world of design. We are the “Dreams” of tomorrow. We are the vibrant moments of “Self-expressions.” We are the constant and essential caring “Community.” We are “Design Inclusion” at its best.
