MIW in the Community


We love our community.

That's why we have spent the last 15 years producing and sponsoring free workshops, clinics, panels, and other cool activities.

Part of our mission includes serving special needs groups including inner city youth, veterans, visually impaired, and wheel chair bound.

We have partnered up with a number of not for profit organizations including Make a Wish Foundation, Boys and Girls Clubs, and YMCA in order to provide fun activities for youth and adults from all walks of life.

Working together with government agencies and community organizations such as the Mayor's Office, Chicago Public Schools, Chicago Park District, and others, we strive to make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
