About Chicago Cultural Alliance

The Chicago Cultural Alliance (CCA) is the only organization of its kind in the US, representing 36 Chicago-area heritage museums, cultural centers, and historical societies – our Core Members, and 12 Partners, a wide range of civic and arts organizations. Our mission is to connect, promote and support centers of cultural heritage for a more inclusive and culturally vibrant region.

The CCA’s programming and services celebrate diversity, preserve history, and honor tradition while amplifying intercultural collaboration. CCA offerings include large-scale collaborative programming that showcase Core Member assets, shared services that build capacity,

promotion, and networking opportunities throughout the year through our member meetings and conferences.

The CCA was formally created in 2008 after beginning at The Field Museum as the Cultural Connections program from 1998-2006.
