A little about what we do and why

Chicago Asian Network (CAN) is a full-service multi-cultural marketing agency serving the fast-growing Asian American community in Chicago. The organization was founded in 2010 by a group of community leaders, community volunteers and thought leaders of Chicago’s Asian Pacific American community. CAN began providing a community platform and content creation that serves to consolidate and represent the multi-generational and diverse Asian American community through Internet resources, media and events. CAN educates, collaborates, and stimulates dialogue amongst Asian American organizations, programs and institutions and serves as a liaison to corporations and businesses that wish to effectively engage with Asian American leaders and organizations

WE CONNECT WITH ALL ASIAN COMMUNITIES

Our city is a creative hub of amazing stories, happenings, and moments that captivate our senses. Each of our groups bring a flavor of delight, and it’s our job to make sure you know about it and become part of it.

WE BELIEVE IN FOSTERING GROWTH

To grow a community like Chicago with diverse needs simply requires strategic cooperation and partnerships. We can help bridge the gap that leads to collaborative growth.

WE BELIEVE IN UNITY AND ACCEPTANCE

To do amazing things, we need to work together and accept our differences. Imagine the possibilities and challenges we can overcome.

A-squared Theater

Our way of giving back. Chicago Asian Network donates a portion of its proceeds to A-squared Theater, a nonprofit Asian American theatre company that provides opportunities for Asian American theatre artists to develop and showcase their work and talent by staging stories that accurately depict the Asian American cultural identity and experience and educate the general public on issues relevant to the Asian American community, such as family, immigration, assimilation, social justice, sexuality, mental health, and other pertinent themes.
