Craft(ing) Culture(s) :: Social Enterprise, Artisanship, & Asset-Based Disruption

  • Friday, November 6, 2015 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

There is a burgeoning interest in social innovation, social enterprise, and conscious capitalism.  In an era of increasing income inequality, individuals, families, communities, and organizations are all seeking creative new pathways to stability and self-sufficiency.   Join us for a panel discussion exploring Chicago-area successes, challenges, and opportunities for social enterprises and small businesses based on community artisanship. The discussion will be followed by a Q & A session and small breakout groups.
