Art Leaders of Color Network - ALCN

ALCN's vision is to become a 'go-to' authority and platform where ALCN members (founders & friends) are recognized as tastemakers on the cutting edge of innovative cultural production---within the Chicago art world in general but within Chicago's marginalized art world(s), in particular. ALCN's mission is to deliver critical presentation insights and initiatives that enlighten and empower artists/ audiences/ critics/ producers/ venues/ donors & funders to seek and support boundary-pushing arts programming by creatives of color. Stay in touch with us at alcnchicago@gmail.com, like us on Facebook and of course sign up to receive the ALCN Digest.
