The Arts & Business Council of Chicago (A&BC) offers Field Offices as part of the 77 Communities Initiative, a realignment of resources to prioritize supporting creative enterprises in divested communities. These mobile offices, held outside A&BC’s downtown location, serve to meet artist-entrepreneurs and organizations where they are – in community!
What Happens at a Field Office?
A&BC staff make themselves available for community conversation, walk-ins, and service navigation during these full-day, open door events. Are you familiar with the resources available to you or have questions about where to find support for your business? Stop by and get them answered!
Field Offices are open to all and invite walk-ins. No registration required.
All Field Offices have been postponed due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19. Please check back for new dates.
