On the Table at Intuit: Fostering LGBTQ Inclusivity in
Chicago's Cultural Institutions

Tuesday, May 16, 2017
noon-1 p.m.
Lunchtime roundtable discussion
Free (RSVP required, limited seats available)
Lunch provided


On May 16, thousands of Chicago area residents will pull up a chair at On the Table gatherings like ours to discuss the future of our communities while sharing a meal together. Intuit will be one of thousands of locations across the Chicago region hosting similar events where community residents from all ages and backgrounds will come together to put real issues and solutions “on the table” and share their commitments to helping shape our collective future.

Let’s gather, share a bite to eat, and talk about how we can improve our community! Our conversation will focus on LGBTQ inclusivity in Chicago's cultural institutions. Facilitated by professor, artist, and filmmaker Dan Rybicky, this roundtable discussion will allow attendees to share experiences, address challenges, and propose solutions to overcoming barriers existing within our city's institutions.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be an impactful discussion! After lunch, we also invite you to explore our new exhibition, Betwixt and Between: Henry Darger's Vivian Girls.

RSVP is required for this event. Please email Melissa Smith at melissa@art.org
