DCASE Homepage > Chicago Cultural Plan
In February 2012, the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) launched an exciting initiative to develop a cultural plan for Chicago. Released in October 2012, the plan created a framework to guide the city’s future cultural and economic growth. The 2012 Chicago Cultural Plan will be the centerpiece to continue to elevate the City as a global destination for creativity, innovation and excellence in the arts.
