The Chicago Humanities Festival believes that the arts and humanities play a vital role in cultivating and understanding the pressing civic, social, and cultural conversations of our time. For over 30 years, we’ve presented thoughtful programs, performances, and exhibitions, developing deep relationships with Chicago’s cultural, civic, and educational communities.
Since March 2020, we launched CHF at Home, a digital version of our festival to continue the conversations animating our moment and connect even broader audiences online with leading filmmakers, community organizers, artists, social scientists, comedians, and directors. Our year-round programming invites audiences to explore, debate, and reflect on the critical issues of our day, as well as timeless questions and ideas. Each year, the Festival’s programming is driven by a relevant, thought-provoking theme at the heart of our civic dialogue—Citizens, Peace& War, America—and those that reflect on our broader human condition (Belief, Power,Journeys). 2020 is the Year of Vision, which explores the people and ideas helping us to imagine different worlds, alternative realities, or the possibility of change.
CHF has an international reputation for innovation and creativity, featuring an exceptional roster of writers, scholars, performers, and visual artists live on stage and online. CHF values programming that is accessible and inclusive, and speaks to diverse audiences, including youth and people of color. We program across Chicago neighborhoods and bring people and ideas that invite participation and dialogue among audience members.
