Arts and culture—from dining to architecture to live performance—are essential to defining the character of a neighborhood. They’re also key to its economic vitality. But entwining artistic and economic enterprise does not always serve the interests of a community equitably and without exploitation. For our ongoing Neighborhood Check-In Series, CHF checks in with community leaders and creative voices transforming neighborhoods now and for the future. We confront what that means in different parts of the city, and ask how arts-driven neighborhood development might change following the events of this year.
This program is presented in partnership with Build Bronzeville and the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture.
