Inherit Chicago is a month-long festival of intercultural art, ideas and performance at neighborhood heritage institutions brought to you by Chicago Cultural Alliance. It is the first and only intercultural festival that highlights the rich diversity across the city’s neighborhoods, and promotes cultural and community understanding.
The Chicago Cultural Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit in the state of Illinois with a mission to support, connect and promote centers of cultural heritage for a more inclusive and culturally vibrant Chicago. We hope that Inherit Chicago offers Chicagoans a chance to explore more about their own roots, and a chance to learn more about others. The funds from World Dumpling Fest go to support this cause, and our mission to support our membership of 36 cultural heritage centers.
