About SAMBA

SAMBA’S VISION

We believe that the South Suburbs represent the heart of Mid-America with family-friendly villages, an under-recognized but strong education system, award-winning park districts with vast recreational opportunities, a vibrant arts scene, affordable housing, convenient shopping, and transportation, welcoming public spaces, and perhaps most distinctively, diverse and engaged communities.

 

SAMBA’S GOALS

  • To promote the South Suburbs as a vibrant family-friendly arts destination.
  • To encourage connection, knowledge exchange, and resource-sharing among arts, municipalities, and businesses
  • To attract and welcome new businesses and the creative class to our region.
  • To foster creativity and active participation in building the community
