The Chicago Humanities Festival has celebrated the questions that shape and define us as individuals, communities, and cultures. For the intellectually curious, CHF offers stimulating year-round programing, including the robust Fall Festival and new Spring Festival. These programs offer the opportunity to engage with some of the world’s most brilliant minds. Collaborating with leading arts, cultural, and educational organizations, it presents scholars, artists and architects, thinkers, theologians, and policy makers that change how we see the world, where we’re from, and where we’re going. Under the leadership of Executive Director Phillip Bahar and Marilyn Thoma Artistic Director Alison Cuddy, CHF has become an institution central to the fabric of the city.
