From art to apothecary, jewelry to furniture, apparel to accessories, women makers are stepping into entrepreneurship and growing small, creative businesses. Join four creative women entrepreneurs to explore pressing questions: as more women turn passion into enterprise and define their own trajectories, what challenges do they face? Is the creative economy a true path to artistic and financial freedom? What role does a robust woman-powered network play in the journey?

Followed by Catalyst, a cocktail hour with a topic and a twist.
