Public Square

Location:  Chicago, IL
United States
Project Description: 

A project of the Illinois Humanities Council, the Public Square fosters debate, dialogue, and exchange of ideas about cultural, social, and political issues with an emphasis on social justice. By building bridges between theory and practice, The Public Square encourages the use of ideas as tools to improve people's lives. These programs promote participatory democracy and create space for public conversations. Knowledge is power, yet much crucial knowledge still circulates only in small, isolated communities.
