Making Midwest Fest 2017

July 29, 2017-July 30, 2017

Have you ever watched or read something from an artist that’s not in your creative industry and actually learn something that you’d be able to apply to your own work? That’s what we call a creative collision. It’s the ability to take 2 or more unlike things to find the intersection and to form your own ideas.

The Making Midwest team is putting together a type of event that none of us have ever seen before based on the theme of “creative collisions”.

We’re featuring dozens of creative professionals that range in several industries from food, design, music, to education. Artists will speak on a range of topics all aimed at helping our fellow makers be able to form their own creative collisions during a 2 day festival called Making Midwest Fest.
