Enrich Chicago ALAANA/BIPOC Arts Leaders Call for the preservation of DCASE Funding

Chicago, IL. October 20, 2020 --  Enrich Chicago ALAANA/BIPOC Arts Leaders Call for the preservation of DCASE Funding. DCASE is the primary source of funding for many BIPOC and ALAANA arts and cultural institutions. That’s why ALAANA/BIPOC leaders in the arts and Enrich Chicago are closely following the Mayor’s upcoming 2021 budget proposal as the city faces financial challenges exacerbated by COVID-19 and considers funding cuts to close a budget shortfall. Further cuts to DCASE would be detrimental to our communities. In a letter recently sent to the Mayor, Enrich Chicago and partners urged the Mayor to protect the city’s investment in arts and culture. As COVID-19 continues to disproportionately impact communities of color, we’re committed to ensuring that neighborhood arts organizations survive this challenging time and thrive beyond the pandemic. Stay tuned. View our letter by clicking here.
