Who We Are
The GenX Project
Elevating STEAM programs that matter!
GenXque “The GenX Project” was launched in 2022. We are a nonprofit organization and exist to support educational initiatives through an educational mobile museum experience to support students and families in underserved communities. Recent cuts in government funding for education as resulted in budget deficits for schools, we are committed to providing college tuition to fill these needs.
The GenX Project’s Mission:
We created GenXque -“The GenX Project” (501(c)3 with a mission to educate, inspire, and mentor. The GenX Project’s mobile museum shares the unfiltered stories of individuals from each Generation. We examine how people view their own contributions and decisions for their community using virtual art and artifacts. Sharing adversity of all levels and backgrounds, these discussions are celebrating the differences and similarities equally through an expression of skill and imagination.
GenXque – The GenX Project is committed to supporting museum activity that demonstrates exceptional aesthetic investigation and meaningful community engagement. Specifically, the will assists museums throughout the Chicagoland area through support of exhibitions, care of collections, conservation, commissions, public art works, community engagement, education activities, and other museum work. The mobilization of the museum exhibitions funded by your donations will demonstrate artistic excellence and artistic merit in and across a variety of mediums, movements, eras, and cultures, while on tour. Our fundraising goal is $10,000,000. (Financial Requirements Upon Request)
The GenX Project is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and fostering mutual respect for the diverse beliefs and values of all individuals and groups. The GenX Project will use its resources to fund college scholarships to support students in underserved communities.
Choosing STEAM and Arts Education as our project discipline and proposing a pre-K through 12th grade direct learning initiative was important because it directly aligns with national and state education standards.
Our targeted audience is intergenerational so it will benefit our youth where the focus is exposure and appreciation of the science, technology, engineering, arts in the school and math (STEAM) applications — whether activities take place in school, after school, during the summer, or in the community.
Such projects may include performances by or exhibitions of professional artists. Arts events may be accompanied by ancillary learning activities (e.g., study guides for teachers and students, artists’ visits prior to or following the event, workshops, lecture-demonstrations, or master classes).
We plan individual events and fundraisers to help cover the costs and showcase the benefits of the program. We can benefit greatly from the support of donors, grants, volunteers, community organizations and sponsorships.
