A partnership among the Burnham Plan Centennial Committee, LISC/ Chicago and the Chicago Cultural Alliance, this collaborative, capacity-building program is designed to generate local pride and build momentum for implementing bold plans in Chicago's diverse neighborhoods. The program has incubated new tours, trained community residents to tell their stories, and introduced a wide variety of new local, professional, and regional audiences to the exciting on-the-ground plans and initiatives that showcase Chicago’s rich and diverse neighborhoods.
The Bold Plans Big Dreams Community Showcase Tours initiative is funded with generous contributions from The Boeing Company and LISC/Chicago.
