Live Creative Workshops

Making Midwest is going online this year for season six. Just because we can't get together, doesn't mean we can't have some fun and learn from each other. Starting in June, 2020, season 6 of Making Midwest we'll kick off and will last for 90 days! Yeah, a conference that lasts 90 days... Because we know you don't want to just sit in front of your computer for 3 straight days! Stay tuned for the full list of presenters and workshops. 

If you're currently without a full-time job or experiencing any kind of financial hardship, we invite you to apply for a scholarship provided by our amazing sponsors. Apply here.
