Celebrating Arts & Culture in the City of Chester

Our Mission

Chester Made is a humanities-based initiative to celebrate and promote arts and culture in Chester and harness their power as a force for community revitalization.


Stories Make Chester

After months of working together, a group Chester Made advisors are ready to premiere their digitally archived stories about "What makes Chester home." Join us for this exciting new initiative, Stories Make Chester, and get ready to tell your own Chester story as part of this Chester Made Digital Story Project.

Community Is Everything

The Chester Made Institute and pop-up makerspace at 511 Avenue of the States form a creative, cultural hub in the heart of the historic arts and culture district that gives community members the chance to engage with one another, learn more about the city’s cultural assets and history, rebuild their downtown, and change perceptions about Chester. Chester Made is a project of MJ Freed Theater and Pennsylvania Humanities Council, with funding from Spring Point Partners.
