Chicago Humanities: The Next 25 Years

Endowment for the expansion of partnerships with universities, humanities centers, and scholars, and to allow CHF to explore innovative and experimental approaches to programming.

The Chicago Humanities Festival requests $450,000 to allow for the further expansion of partnerships with the Big Ten Universities, humanities centers, and scholars, as well as allow CHF to explore innovative and experimental approaches to programming. CHF envisions many possibilities—commissioned collaborations between scholars and artists; planned engagements with local communities and advocacy organizations; summit panels of national academic leaders on topics of urgency; interactions made possible by the digital dissemination of ideas in real time, and more. Such experimentation involves greater cost and inherent risk. Endowment dollars directed to support such public programming in the humanities will provide a stabilizing foundation. An investment in CHF is equal to investment in the NEH’s goal to encourage collaborations between scholarship and the public humanities.
