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

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.

World Dumpling fest

World Dumpling Fest celebrates diverse cultures throughout Chicago and the world with cultural performance, art, and of course, dumplings!

Conservation & Collections

The Conservation & Collections program works with our membership to ensure that cultural heritage collections, which tell the story of Chicago’s communities, remain properly conserved and accessible to the public.
