    Small Space

    PMI’s promotes community development by creating sustainable and innovative cultural programming and entrepreneurship. Our mission is to create, incubate and sustain innovative cultural programming through the production of socially engaged projects, arts festivals, spaces, exhibitions, and media.

    In 2016, Public Media Institute and the Small Manufacturing alliance have plans to establish an  incubator and accelerator for small businesses and cultural entrepreneurs based in Chicago. The space will be located in Bridgeport’s historic Central Manufacturing District.
