The BRONZEVILLE ALLIANCE is a major partner of OM Productions. Since 2009 the Alliance has collaborated with OM to produce a variety of programs for Bronzeville Schools, businesses and community agencies.
In the fall of 2017, The Alliance launched the Sustainabilty Project, a year long program that centered on the school's garden and dealt with topics such as urban gardening, climate change and STEM based learning.
The Sustainability Project culminated with a twenty-minute video, a booklet on environmental issues and a presentation event held in June of 2018. The video and the booklet are available below.
Beginning March 15, 2015, in conjunction with the Field Museum and The Park District, OM helped train eight high school students who became known as the Bronzeville Greeners.
With the help of OM Productions, The Greeners produced a program book and video highlighting their ethnographic study about the Chicago Lakefront and its relationship to Bronzeville.
The students interviewed several elders who grew up in the area. Click on the image above to see the video. The Legends and Lore effort is part of a broader strategy to make Bronzeville one of the healthiest communities in America by creating a vision for the 21st Century Sustainable Family.
