About the Chicago Humanities Festival
The Chicago Humanities Festival (CHF) presents the most compelling authors, artists, and thinkers of our time, connecting people to the ideas that shape and define us. Insightful, entertaining and interactive, Festival events are a platform for authors, journalists, scholars, policymakers and other thought leaders, as well as for artists, actors, musicians, comedians and cultural figures. Our programs provoke conversations, celebrate creativity, build community and explore the boundaries of contemporary knowledge and culture. CHF values programming that reflects multiple viewpoints and lived experiences, is accessible and inclusive, and speaks to diverse audiences. We program across Chicago, bringing people and ideas together in a variety of neighborhoods. CHF seeks to facilitate an engagement with ideas that transcend individual concerns, to enable empathy and connection through shared experiences. We are a hybrid office, working together remotely and in the office; evening and weekend availability required during festival seasons. More information at chicagohumanities.org
