ARM At-A-Glance

Skilled Workers

Theatre technicians have broad talents and skills and have always been committed to serving the community’s civic and arts engagement.

As such ARM believes the Chicago artistic community is uniquely positioned, available, and anxious to be put to work responding to crises of all types.

Current Project

ARM is developing masks and gowns in response to the

COVID-19 Pandemic to be provided at cost to in need agencies and organizations to make ARM a vital part of the economy at this time.

How to Support Us

Fiscal partnership with Apparel Industry Fashion, Inc. has allowed ARM to operate as a non-profit.

After a successful seed campaign of $1000, AIFI has launched a follow-on GoFundMe to help jump-start the program.

Donations are tax deductible.


We find meaningful ways to put uniquely skilled artists in the performing arts and entertainment sector back to work while filling community needs wherever possible.

No request is too large or too small. We founded to make supplemental PPEs for communities in need but we plan to exist beyond this current crisis and find ways to support our community in an ongoing basis to be ready mobilize in times of urgent need.


We mobilize as our parents and grandparents did to respond to World War, the Great Depression, and other historic moments. We mobilize because the world needs artists to mobilize in times of crisis.
