Takin’ It to the Streets

An international festival where artistic expression, spirituality and urban creativity inspire social change.

Takin’ It to the Streets Festival & Summit is coming August 6, 2016!


Since 1997, Takin’ It to the Streets has worked to bridge today’s cultural divides by connecting diverse racial, ethnic, and religious communities through a dynamic festival. The festival will enrich cross-cultural community building not only in Chicago, but around the world.

‘Streets is recognized throughout the city and country as a one-of-a-kind outdoor gathering that brings people together across faith and ethnicity and from all walks of life to proactively engage one another through artistic expression, community forums, spiritual reflection, family fun and an international bazaar.
