Inherit Chicago is a citywide, intercultural festival of art ideas and performance at neighborhood cultural centers and heritage museums, members of the Chicago Cultural Alliance.

World Dumpling Fest is the opening celebration to a larger effort called Inherit Chicago. Inherit Chicago is an intercultural citywide festival put on by the city's cultural heritage museums and cultural centers, organizations such as--Bronzeville Historical Society, Open Center for the Arts, & Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art.

Over 30 cultural heritage organizations are coming together for this initiative, in an effort to promote culture on a community-based level, with first-voice perspectives. The producing organization, Chicago Cultural Alliance, is the coalition that brings these organizations together. Ticket sales from World Dumpling Fest go to make the larger festival possible.

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.
