Arts Alliance Illinois' New AMP Series

On December 10, 2018 from 5 PM - 7PM

If you’re wondering what the results of the midterm elections mean for arts and culture in Illinois, please join us on Monday, December 10 for the inaugural event in our new AMP (Arts Move Policy) Series.

Illinois artists are serving as leaders in civic engagement, educating the public about government and empowering citizen participation in democracy. We’ll look at innovative examples of arts-fueled civic engagement in Illinois, analyze the federal and state-level midterm election results, and discuss their potential impact on arts, culture, and arts education. Join us for a lively, insightful discussion with:

Tom Cross 
Senior Consultant, Culloton Strategies
Former Illinois House Republican Leader

Marj Halperin 
Executive Vice President and Partner, Hawthorne Strategy Group;
