Core Members are centers of cultural heritage created. They are First-Voice, community driven organizations that preserve a specific cultural perspective, experience and living history either through programs, exhibits or collections work.

Partner Members are diverse educational, civic and cultural organizations who support the Alliance mission of creating a greater cultural inclusion in Chicago and have vested interest in collaborating with Chicago’s diverse centers of heritage. Partners are usually not representing one specific ethnicity but a broad range of groups and will invest resources to help cultural vibrancy flourish in the Chicago region.

Cultural Allies our individual member program gives you exclusive access to our region’s cultural heritage institutions and the histories and traditions they represent. To learn more check out our Cultural Allyship Program.
