Chicago Arts and Culture: Funding and Futures 

Hosted by DCASE, Arts Alliance Illinois, and the Chicago Cultural Alliance

You’re invited to join the conversation. As we move into 2022, Arts Alliance Illinois, the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), and the Chicago Cultural Alliance have teamed up to gather vital community perspectives to guide our work in the coming year. We hosted 2 DCASE informational sessions, 4 deep-dive focus groups, and are continuing to collect data and feedback through a digital survey through February 4th

We need your perspective on the challenges and opportunities faced by Chicago’s creative workers and businesses. This information will help guide efforts in the coming year and contribute to the wider city plan and initiative, We Will Chicago.
