CSCI is proud to announce that it has received Sister Cities International’s Arts and Culture Innovation Award for the 7th Annual International Festival that took place in August 2012 on Daley Plaza. CSCI Executive Director Leroy Allala accepted the award on behalf of the organization last week at Sister Cities International’s Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas.

Sister Cities International awarded CSCI the award for the festival because it showcased the arts and culture of Chicago’s 28 sister cities; raised awareness of the Sister Cities International citizen diplomacy model; educated the public on the rich cultural diversity of Chicago’s sister cities; and for its standard as a high-quality event that stands on par with the year-long programming featured on Daley Plaza.

Make sure to join us for the 8th Annual International Festival on Daley Plaza from August 5–9, 2013.
