Welcome to Cultural Connections: Stories of Resilience!

Our first guest is Angel Ysaguiree, our 2020 Cultural Champion Awardee. Angel moved to the US from Belize when he was 12 years old and has been an exceptional cultural leader in Chicago for 24 years. Although we were unable to celebrate him in May, we invited him to participate in our Cultural Connections podcast to share thoughts on the future of the Arts & Culture Sector. 

The future is bright. 

The breadth and depth in conversation

 on equity in the arts happening right now

 is one that has not been heard before. 

Your support of the Alliance and our mission has never been more vital. At the Alliance, our members stand together as a positive force – building cultural understanding and solidarity, protecting and promoting the diverse immigrant and native cultural institutions that make Chicago unique.
