Chicago Humanities Festival

About Chicago Humanities Festival

At Chicago Humanities Festival, we believe that humanity thrives when people gather, connect and open themselves to ideas that go beyond their individual experience. That's why for almost 30 years, CHF has been curating live events that allow audiences to connect with thinkers-both established and emerging and see the world differently. Under the leadership of Executive Director Phillip Bahar and Marilynn Thoma Artistic Director, Alison Cuddy, CHF is one of Chicago's most vibrant civic institutions. Join us and celebrate the social life of ideas.
