Small Places, Big Opportunities: Empowering Rural Making and Creative Entrepreneurship
Presented by Kim Chestney and James Denova

The country is the new city. In the wake of displacement and gentrification, we see more and more creatives making the move to pastoral communities. Join us as we talk with creatives who choose to make their homes outside of the cities, and explore the landscape of possibilities in rural creative placemaking.
What does it mean to be a rural creative entrepreneur? More and more people are making their own success by starting their own creative businesses. Whether you are a maker, artist, craftsperson, or anything in between, join us to for a discussion on starting and growing your own company, and learn from success stories of other people just like you! Co-Sponsored by Garrett College and the Pittsburgh Technology Council's Creative Industries Network
AGENDA: 9AM-12PM  Maker Festival
