LATITUDE depends on donations, grants, and program service revenue (i.e. lab income). Please consider supporting us with a tax-deductible donation so that we can continue to support Chicago's community of makers and thinkers! To learn more, or to discuss the possibility of an equipment or other type of in-kind donation, please email pepper@latitudechicago.org. 

ABOUT US

LATITUDE is a volunteer-run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Chicago. We maintain a digital lab with high-end scanning and printing equipment, operate an artist in residence program, and organize ongoing arts programming. We gladly welcome all members of the public to make use of the lab and attend our events. Our location, hours, and contact info can be found here.

LATITUDE is operated by a small staff and a number of volunteer Lab Assistants who receive ongoing lab access and training. The lab is an educational and arts production facility for hundreds of artists per year, and our related programming (e.g. talks, workshops, and panel discussions) attracts many more. We are proud to have received grants and other support from such organizations as the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, the MacArthur Funds for Arts and Culture at The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, and the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), the Weinberg/Newton Family Foundation, and to have had our residency program partially supported by the David C. & Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation.

MISSION
LATITUDE’s mission is to provide access to high-end digital media equipment, a professional production space, and a curriculum dedicated to real-world workflows and contemporary art theory.
