MADE IN NYC: The Reinvention of Local Manufacturing
Prospect Heights location, Brooklyn Brainery

For decades, American and urban manufacturing charted a steep decline, a byproduct of globalization and outsourcing. Today, however, manufacturing is returning to our shores and entering a renaissance in major cities. Contemporary manufacturing in New York City has been redefined by a new class of young, energetic and entrepreneurial artists, artisans and small producers. However, industry in New York and especially in Brooklyn must contend with the perennial challenges of gentrification, rezoning and development. Come learn about what's being made in NYC today and what you can do to support local manufacturing. We'll cover industrial policy, business incubators, R&D, hybrid manufacturing, and the craft food movement, among other highlights.
