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.

Nearly 500 Chicago business, community and workforce development leaders joined honorary co-chairs Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Penny Pritzker at the Palmer House Hilton on October 6 to celebrate Skills for Chicagoland’s Future’s employer and community partners at its third annual Employment Champions Breakfast.
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.
