Creative Networks: Mexican Immigrant Assets in Chicago

Creative Networks: Mexican Immigrant Assets in Chicago (executive summary, 14 pages, PDF) examines how the participation of Mexican immigrants in church, school, and informal arts groups strengthens their social networking, and how their cultural and artistic contributions add to the diversity of Chicago's communities. Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, the report from the Field Museum's Center for Cultural Understanding and Change and the Team Engineering Collaboratory and Science of Networks in Communities at the University of Illinois also offers a number of policy recommendations.
