360 nation is a community organization based out of the west side of chicago that utilizes relationship building, gifts, and talents to promote self determination in the Black community.
WHAT WE DO
360 nation utilizes education to demonstrate a lifestyle that promotes the positive development of the Black community through the attainment of creative and technical skill sets and a critical race consciousness. 360 nation works with neighborhood schools and stakeholders to create and implement transformative learning experiences. We utilize history and project based learning as mechanisms for filling non material and material community voids.
360 Nation believes that the essence of the human experience is the ability to imagine and love, as well as the desire to create and build relationships. Our current society forces us to develop an in-depth understanding of oppressive ideologies and practices, which often suppresses are innate ability to impose ourselves in the world. Therefore, we must return back to the essence of the human experience, but through a critical lens. The integration of imagination, creativity, love, relationship building, and critical thought will lead us to individual and collective liberation.
