The mission of Journey Chicago is to:

Generate creative cross-cultural dialogue resulting in public programs.

Invite “cultural consumers”, residents and visitors alike to explore
beyond the museum campus and Loop, venturing out into Chicago’s many vibrant neighborhoods to make meaningful connections with community stakeholders and cultural heritage organizations.

 Inspire cultural action, neighborhood investment, and use arts and culture as a catalyst for equitable revitalization through pop-up programming.


Journey Chicago 2021 will take place in September and October 2021.  Events are hosted by Core and Partner Members of the Chicago Cultural Alliance and take place throughout Chicago’s neighborhoods, suburbs, and online.

See the schedule of events here.

NOTE: We are closely monitoring COVID-19 and will share any new information that affects this
program. Please observe all required safety precautions when attending Journey Chicago events.
