AUX provides administrative support to help artist-run initiatives realize their work. We apply what we have learned as an artist-led nonprofit to work with others on communications, fiscal sponsorship, grant writing, and project management. AUX operates on a sliding-scale, project-by-project basis. If we could be helpful for your work, let us know!

Roman Susan is a grateful partner of Performance Response Journal, with support from the Walder Foundation, Hyde Park Art Center Artists Run Chicago Fund, and individual donors. Joining our Rogers Park storefront neighbors at PO Box Collective, we are acting as fiscal sponsors for their expanding efforts. Working with 6018North, we’re learning about our surrounding neighborhoods, local sustainability, and the arts infrastructure of Chicagoland.

In the past, we’ve relocated artworks with 062 to preserve and celebrate the creative legacy of Thomas Kong, helped build prairie platforms for the Chop Wood Carry Water residency, been the fiscal sponsor of Stitch x Stitch with support from Illinois Humanities, and facilitated a grant for The Back Room with support from The Propeller Fund.

The animation here was created by Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson to commemorate the start of the AUX program. Gwyneth was one of the Roman Susan directors in our early stages of learning how non-profiting worked for us.
