Announcing Breakfast Club

The Arts & Business Council of Chicago is excited to host Breakfast Club, a monthly gathering on the first Tuesday of every month for arts administrators. These convenings bring arts leaders to discuss topics and share ideas relevant to the business of art. Breakfast Club supports leaders and staff of nonprofit arts organizations through informal peer-to-peer sharing, casual facilitated conversation, and information dissemination over cereal and coffee.

Client Spotlight: 16th Street Theater

16th Street Theater was created in 2007 to be a theater for people not going to the theater. The theater serves and gives voice to all in Berwyn’s community: not just for some in our community, but for all.  Dedicated to artistic excellence, professionalism, diversity and affordability, 16th Street exists to encourage debate, discussion and compassion amongst the community through the medium of intimate and diverse theater with the playwright as its central focus. 16th Street is a place where audiences are invited to experience not only their own stories, but to experience their neighbors’ stories and stories of “the other.”
