In Chicago there are thousands of people who have started their own small companies to share their artisan made products as well as food and beverages to the public. Some of them started out as artists who used their skills to create hand crafted products. Others are trained chefs and designers who left their day job to pursue their dreams. To share these stories and to inspire you to join the growing movement of localism the Small Manufacturing Alliance is organizing our first SMALL Symposium.

Using the Pecha Kucha style format of presenting a dozen members of the Alliance will share their stories in the Claudia Cassidy Theater. The Symposium is followed by a tasting of some of the great stuff being made here in Chicago.

Participants include:
Matthew Hoffman • Duncan MacKenzie/ Citizen Brick • RX Made • Betty Bot • Working Bikes • Mayana Chocolate • Pleasant House Bakery • Pear Tree Reserves • Morgan Martins • Twisted Hippo • Strand Design • Envision Arts • 22 Berwyn • Flesh for Food • Zak Rose / DOCK 6 • CALM • + more
