Just bring yourself

Steppenwolf Education celebrates the learner, maker and appreciator in each of us. We commit to breaking down barriers to ensure access and equity for all. We emphasize rigorous exploration, intentional mentorship and the cultivation of meaningful relationships in our work. We use theatre to promote compassion, encourage curiosity and inspire action as we work together towards a more empathetic tomorrow.

Our Home: The Loft

The fourth floor of Steppenwolf’s new Liz and Eric Lefkofsky Arts and Education Center, also known as The Loft, is a brand-new space designed to house all of Steppenwolf Education’s programming and inspire the next generation of theater learners, makers and appreciators. The Loft includes three dedicated learning spaces for young people to explore and create within, as well as gallery walls that will feature artwork created by Chicagoland youth.
