Sep 11th 2017

Join us for a public conversation on the role of arts, culture, and creativity in Illinois communities.

Alison Cuddy, Marilynn Thoma Artistic Director of the Chicago Humanities Festival, and Craig Dellimore, Political Editor at WBBM Newsradio, will co-host and moderate this roundtable discussion on issues of importance and relevance to the arts, culture, and creative industries ahead of the Illinois Gubernatorial Primary and the November 6, 2018 General Election.

Topics will include arts education, community development, cultural exchange, public engagement, sources of funding and other support for the creative sector.

Invitations to participate were extended regardless of party affiliation. Confirmed to attend are State Senator Daniel Biss, representing Illinois’ Ninth District; Bob Daiber, Regional Superintendent of Schools for Madison County; and J. B. Pritzker, Managing Partner and Cofounder of the Pritzker Group. Any additional participants in the Forum will be announced at later dates.

While admission to the 2017 Gubernatorial Arts Forum is free, space is limited and seating cannot be guaranteed for walk-ups.
