We believe awesome things happen when neighbors explore possibilities of place together.
We are a collective of neighborly collaborators that work to bring out stories, ideas, and connections that make the place we live more vibrant. Our primary focus is on the neighborhoods surrounding the 47th Ward of Chicago that touch Ravenswood, Lincoln Square, and North Center. However, our supporters, thought partners, and influencers are from Chicago and beyond.

How did this start?
Simply. It started with just one neighbor exploring the juxtaposition between vibrant community-centered places and persistently vacant properties. Somewhere between neighborhood coffees, community walks, dinner parties, and delightful design–- The League of Awesome Possibilities was born. Initial projects launched in 2012 with the support of GOOD maker and the Awesome Foundation.
