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.

The Chicago Cultural Plan—with 10 priorities, 36 recommendations, and more than 200 initiatives—puts forth an ambitious arts agenda.
It's going to take all of Chicago working together to transform these pioneering ideas into wins for our schools, neighborhoods, and economy. I support the Chicago Cultural Plan and its implementation, and I urge the City Council to do its part in making sure the plan doesn't sit on a shelf.
In Chicago, 53,603 jobs and 4.31 percent of businesses are arts-related. The nonprofit arts alone are a $2.2 billion industry that support over 60,000 full-time equivalent jobs. Investing in the Chicago Cultural Plan will reap economic and social rewards for all Chicagoans.
