Victory

From Arts Alliance Illinois: Last week the Chicago City Council approved $1 million to implement Chicago's new Cultural Plan. Everyone who signed the Change.org petition helps us show there is a strong base of support for arts and culture in Chicago. Thank you!

Chicago's new Cultural Plan—with 10 priorities, 36 recommendations, and more than 200 initiatives—puts for an ambitious arts agenda. The plan's most important chapter, though, has yet to be written: how it will be implemented. Don't let Chicago's new Cultural Plan sit on a shelf. Sign the petition to show the Chicago City Council you support the plan and its implementation.

      If it were not for public arts programs I would have been lost as a child. As an adult it is these programs that brought me to Chicago and provides a high quality of life, employs me and feeds my passion.

      Arts is where creativity, communication, and community meet... Plus, I'm a supporter of anything positive, progressive, and people-centered.
