State of Chicago

Assessing the State of Chicago in Poverty, Arts, Education, and Entrepreneurship

The State of Chicago is about building and strengthening the Chicago community.  Its first iteration will be a series of 4 ebooks, each addressing how Chicago is doing in relation to entrepreneurship, the arts, education, and poverty.  The approach to each book is similar to a business plan “SWOT” analysis.  Approximately 25 contributors from the Chicago community will share their insights on the “State of Chicago,” in addition to sharing ideas for how to strengthen the community in each of these areas.


The “Arts” ebook will be broken in 4 subsections:  film, theatre, dance, and music.
