AN ARTS-LED MOVEMENT TO UNDO RACISm.
On March 14, 2018, Enrich Chicago and the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) partnered to host a listening session and community conversation about their groundbreaking study, The Cost of Segregation.
Marisa Novara (Vice President, MPC) and Alden Loury (Director or Research and Evaluation, MPC), reviewed key findings of the study and together, we answered the question: "How can the arts help change patterns of racial and economic segregation?".
This enticing and audacious idea—to reimagine our city—brought together over 50 individuals representing nearly 30 different arts and culture organizations and foundations. Together they heard the key findings of this report and engaged in a community dialogue aimed at surfacing strategies to reduce economic and racial segregation.
