Culture sweeps through Chicago for the Lake FX Summit


The second annual Lake FX Summit + Expo lands back at the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington) May 13 to 15 to hold the region’s largest free gathering of artists and creatives. Over the course of the three days, more than 100 panels, talks and workshops will take place on a range of topics to assist cultural entrepreneurs in the areas of marketing, engagement strategies, legal affairs and even financial concerns. This fantastic summit is for anyone working in (or wanting to work in) fashion, music, art, design, technology, culinary and more. Performances by the likes of Chicago’s Lupe Fiasco and Rhymefest take place May 13 and 14 while live podcasts and a marketplace hosted by Dose Market go on as well. You’ll hear talks from chef Graham Elliot, fashion designer Maria Pinto, musician Ramsey Lewis and actress Regina Taylor.
