Rich Alapack

we all live here
Rich Alapack is the founder of we all live here. He started the Chicago based organization as an antidote
to all the things that have unintentionally evolved into reasons for people to not get along. Given his
background in tech and advertising, he had the skills and network necessary to start an organization
whose mission was to use art, community, and technology to remind us all to get along and help each
other succeed. If society is ever going to defeat things like racism, hatred, violence, etc. Rich believes we
will have to start with our youth. He works with schools to create public art that uses we all live here as a
theme. These art projects come to life by teaching students basic graphic design during a school wide
assembly. The students help design a we all live here logo for their school's project. Rich collects these
as crowd sourced ideas so that each project reflects each school's unique neighborhood. The official logo
gets put onto products which along with sponsorship from local businesses (large and small) funds the art
installations. This approach unites the staff and students with the broader community, introduces students
to neighborhood leaders and entrepreneurs and also gives the them a blueprint of how to make their own
ideas come to life. Come listen to Rich and learn how we all live here can help bring more unity to your
