Since its founding, CAB has partnered with hundreds of civic and cultural organizations across Chicago and internationally. Through these relationships—which range from supporting research to co-producing events to highlighting aligned programs—CAB expands its mission and reach across the city and beyond.

Interested in Partnering with CAB? 

Partnerships foreground and expand community participation in the public forum of the Biennial, on both a local and an international scale. We look forward to working with you as we create a discourse around the built environment and its impact on our lives.

Included below is a link to our 2021 CAB Partner Program Toolkit and 2021 Partner Program Information Form. We encourage you to submit this form with your program details by July 15, 2021 to be included to be included on our CAB program calendar launching on August 1st, 2021. To be included on the CAB program calendar after the July 15th deadline, all details must be submitted by the 15th of the prior month of the program. For example, for October programs, all program information needs to be submitted by September 15.
