Pioneering authentic and thought-provoking programs that connect, support and promote a more diverse and inclusive Chicago.

Statement on COVID-19

In these uncertain times, COVID-19 is affecting all aspects of our society, including how, when, and where we live and work. Communities are being tested, as people are facing fear, illness, and even death. In times like these, language can be very powerful.

Alliance Programs

Our public programs invite Chicago residents and visitors to explore the city’s neighborhoods through interactive and meaningful cross-cultural experiences such as our Inherit Chicago Festival, World Dumpling Festival, and Stories of Im/Migration: Chicago.


Creating new and unique connections that amplify voices and ideas across Chicago’s cultural heritage institutions.


Our programming explores and validates new models for cross-cultural engagement that combats indifference and creates opportunities to increase investments back into neighborhoods and communities.
