One of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot's bold new initiatives Chicago Urban Fine Arts Commonwealth plans to get on the ground floor with is more public funding for the arts, especially the urban fine arts. In the nearly 16 years of Chicago Hip-Hop Heritage Month as an observance, Chicago City Council and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, DCASE, have declined to organize and fund dedicated events for the observance. Compare with Cook County, especially the Cook County Forest Preserve District, which has funded events for Chicago Hip-Hop Heritage Month dating back to the unprecedented and event-saving--from rain--beat-boxer pavilion at the 2017 Teen Exploration Day at Powderhorn Lake in Burnham. This year, the Cook County Forest Preserve District is supporting an expanded hip-hop pavilion for 2019 Teen Exploration Day. Ald. Walter Burnett (D-27th), who sponsored the Chicago Hip-Hop Heritage Month resolution drafted by hip-hop community organizers and adopted Jul. 9, 2003 by Chicago City Council described to the measure as "honorary" and added that "funding is more difficult." None of the aldermen rebutted Chicago Urban Fine Arts Commonwealth team leader Mark F. Armstrong's public comment before council's Finance Committee that funding wasn't difficult to fund parades for every major sports team win and to allow Oprah Winfrey to shut down North Michigan before she took her sh*t and split to Hollywood. Meanwhile, more than a couple of respondents surveyed last year during city summer events in Milliennium and Grant parks have expressed a strong interest in the city of Chicago offering a free summer hip-hop festival.

At Northeastern Illinois University campus on Chicago’s Northwest Side—in connection with the 15th official observance of Chicago Hip-Hop Month and the first unofficial observance of Cook County Fine Arts Months—a handful of restless independent filmmakers met in caucus in July 2018 to forge an agenda toward influencing respects for their industry among their community, the urban fine arts community at large and among public policymakers as voters, taxpayers, businessfolk AND artists. The caucus unanimously agreed that it wanted to initially tackle the following issues in transforming Chicago’s world-class independent film community, distinguished in its own right from a non-vassal state of Hollywood, from disaffected and adversarial to engaged and collaborative with local, state and federal government: *A reboot of existing tackle city of Chicago and Cook County laws from adversarial to nurturing in encourage sustainable business and economic development growth among the local independent film industry; *With the help of local government, establishing training opportunities at the elementary and secondary education levels that lead to gainful employment in the local independent film industry; *With the help of local government, establishing hands-on internship and other employment opportunities for elementary, secondary and post-secondary students that lead to career-boosting experiences among the local independent film industry. Out of that deliberative assembly emerged the Chicago Film Action Board, an autonomous civic action think tank under the nurturing infrastructure of the civic action organization Chicago Urban Fine Arts Commonwealth, which launched as a child organization of Chicago Progress, founded by 40th Award Ald.-elect Andre Vasquez, after his initial association with the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign (and long after he operated a film production concern out of his Humboldt Park home as an early organizer at the turn of the 21st century among Greater Chicagoland’s hip-hop community)., Emulating CUFAC’s legacy of civic engaging results-achieving in its half year of existence, CFAB has collectively pulled off the following accomplishments: *Forged an on-going collaboration with the Cook County Social Innovation Commission and the Cook County Board of Commissioners Business and Economic Development Committee to chiseled out an initiative to carry out the agenda the July filmmakers caucus at NIEU settled on; *Acquired Chicago Police Department credentials and placed on the track to acquire credentials for covering the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Chicago one of CFAB’s more prolific news media content partners; *Gained support from the Cook County Board of Commissioners for CUFAC’s suicide awareness/prevention video content PSA series “Life Is Such a Gift” that’s a key facet of a collaborative Well Dome Alliance initiative; *Launched an emerging collaboration with the A Chiquita Maquinita open screening series offered every two months toward uniting Greater Chicagoland’s independent film industry, including organizing special events showcasing during the 16th official observance of Chicago Hip-Hop Heritage Month and the first official observance of Cook County Urban Fine Arts Month opportunities for business, economic development and civic engagement; *Brought 2017 Pulitzer Prize- and 2018 Guggenheim medal-winning poet Tyehimba Jess to address the Cook County Board of Commissioners Finance Committee, chaired by John P. Daley (Richard J, Daley’s middle son) on the benefits of public funding for the urban fine arts; *Launched a “We Aren’t Your Damn Archivists” speaking tour to reinforce how we filmmakers, AND ONLY WE FILMMAKERS, accurately and dependably speak for ourselves and our concerns. CFAB’s governing board is composed of two golden sisters, college arts educator, filmmaker and CFAB chair Rujanee Mahakanjana and NEIU student leader, talk media personality, community organizer and CFAB co-secretary Trudy Leong, two black guys with local urban fine arts hood cred, horror filmmaker, local film community organizer and co-vice chair Tommy Sigmon and accomplished filmmaker, writer, political strategist, community organizer and co-secretary Mark F. Armstrong and white chick down for the Cause, Chicago Public Schools educator, accomplished filmmaker and co-vice chair Sarah Falkiner. At another caucus in July TBA, looks forward to expanding its based, especially among its governing board. And even before then, CFAB is inching way toward getting on the ground floor with the incoming mayoral administration that campaigned on more public funding in Chicago for the arts.
