The metropolis of Chicago and the remote communities of the Canadian Arctic seem to almost be worlds apart. And the distinct environment and culture of each place has shaped the outlook of those who live there. Yet there is a surprising amount that unites the inhabitants of these communities—and that they can learn from each other—as they strive to understand their place in a rapidly changing world. This spring the Council will convene voices from the top of the world, and across Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods, to celebrate their differences and explore their shared aspirations through the timeless art of storytelling. There’ll even be an opportunity for the audience to tell their stories at this innovative and unique Council experience.
Copies of Bruce and Vicki Heyman’s book, The Art of Diplomacy: Strengthening the Canada-U.S. Relationship in Times of Uncertainty will be available for sale and signing after the program from the Book Cellar.
