Feed Arts & Cultural Center, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, provides an environment for visual and performing artists of all levels and ages to pursue their work and to broaden their knowledge of the role of art in contemporary society. The mission of Feed is to encourage and nurture emerging and established artists and to increase the appreciation and understanding of the arts within the Kankakeeland communities through classes, workshops, outreach, exhibitions, lectures, film screenings and other cultural events. It is our ultimate hope that Feed can provide a space where people from various backgrounds and worldviews can come together to find common ground and a vision of friendship, solidarity, and empowerment in the community.
Through thoughtful and creative programming, the gallery at Feed offers inspiring exhibitions for the public, educational and professional development for local artists, and exciting activities for the Kankakee area.
Education & Events
Feed’s Member Artists offer an array of creative classes, workshops and drop-in events to supplement traditional classroom arts instruction for children and allow adults to explore their creativity while developing new skills.
Meanwhile, events such as musical performances, film screenings, staged readings, and more enrich the cultural landscape of our community.
Feed also offers a communal studio space for our Member Artists. Members share the facilities and equipment at Feed. They play a role in decision making and participate in community events and exhibitions.
