Cultural Plan

The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) unveiled a comprehensive Cultural Plan in 2012 to build on Chicago’s rich cultural history and further establish the City’s position as a national and global centerpiece for arts and culture.  It was the first Cultural Plan to be drafted in the city in a generation and was the product of more than eight months of work, dozens of town hall meetings, and the input of thousands of residents. The final plan included more than 200 specific recommendations and addressed four key areas: people, places, policies, and planning culturally.
