Chicago Amplified is a web-based audio archive of educational events taking place throughout the Chicago region.
A Partnership-based project of Chicago Public Media, Chicago Amplified was created in 2006 to bring wider distribution to some of the most exciting and informative public programming happening throughout the Chicago region. Everyday throughout the greater Chicago region there are lectures, conversations, panel discussions, forums, and other educational events taking place. They serve the purpose of inspiring public discourse about a vast array of topics, from recent scientific discoveries and important issues of the day, to cultural connections and the importance of shared experience in both our personal and collective history. Chicago Amplified brings these events together to both increase access to this ongoing public discourse and encourage us all to join it.
Chicago Amplified is a Partner-based program, you can find out more about participating Partners here. Each event appearing in the Archive has been produced or sponsored by one of the Chicago Amplified Partners. If you would like to suggest an organization or institution for formal partnership, be sure to include a description of the types of educational events hosted, including those scheduled as upcoming. Chicago Amplified Partners are selected annually in the Fall of each year; 2011-2012 Partners have already been selected. Note: only organizations, not specific events, will be considered.
