Jasculca Terman worked closely with Chicago Shakespeare Theater and the Mayor’s office to announce Shakespeare 400 Chicago, an enormous cultural collaboration of more than 60 Chicago institutions including the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago Mariachi project, Harris Theater for Music and Dance, Lyric Opera, Chicago Symphony, Newberry Library, Chicago Public Schools, some of Chicago’s top chefs, and dozens more who will “bring the world to Chicago” in 2016. More than 1,000 actors, artists, musicians, dancers and others from at least 15 countries will stage the world’s largest and most comprehensive celebration of Shakespeare’s enduring legacy in Chicago 400 years after his death. JT provided strategic guidance, drafted materials and messaging, provided event management support and media relations services.
JT was retained by a group of six nonprofit agencies in Illinois that serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The General Assembly had passed a DSP wage increase in 2016 only to see it vetoed by the Governor. JT’s goal: Avoid the same fate in 2017.
More than 200 Chicagoans attended including longtime customers, Mayor Emanuel, politicians and other Chicago notables.
We thank our clients the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Sinai Health System and Gilda's Club Chicago, for their partnership on these important projects.
