@ Chicago Humanities Festival


Opening Thursday, November 12th, from 7PM - 8PM

To understand what’s next, CHF convenes some of the authors behind Our Common Purpose: Reinventing American Democracy for the 21st Century, a recent report from the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS). Join Chair of the AAAS Commission on the Practice of Democratic Citizenship Eric Liu and Commission members Pete Peterson and Hahrie Han for a conversation about our country’s future.
