Chicago Cultural Plan 2012 Draft final discussion on July 31


Julie Burros, Dir. Cultural Planning, talked about the planning process on Mar. 31 in the Pritzker Auditorium

From a series of town hall meetings, which included one in Wicker Park's A. N. Pritzker School, the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) created two documents as a draft of Chicago's Cultural Plan 2012. These findings in the documents are being discussed in four public meetings. The final meeting will be in the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington, July 31, 6 to 8 p.m.

The Cultural Plan document outlines the top priorities and potential initiatives to meet them. Supplemental materials are included in the second documented, both of which may be downloaded.

“After more than 25 years Chicago is on the verge of implementing a new Cultural Plan,” said DCASE Commissioner Michelle T. Boone.  “The draft Chicago Cultural Plan 2012 reflects the voices and views of Chicagoans from across the city and presents a set of initial priorities and recommendations shared with us over the past few months.  Our goal is for the plan to serve as an important tool that can help us build a more vital arts and creative community for Chicago today and into the future.  I encourage everyone to download and review the draft plan and share your thoughts online or attend one of the four town hall meetings this month.”
