Meet-up at Palmer House Hilton at 6pm

Join us at the historic Palmer House lobby for a casual kick off to the symposium. Built over 140 years ago, The Palmer House would have surely been a place Isadora might have visited during her brief time in Chicago. It’s also the site where the brownie was invented! We’ll meet in the lovely art deco lobby for tea and brownies, drinks and some pre-symposium conversation. Come say hi to friends!

Palmer House Lobby: 17 E. Monroe Street, Chicago

You’re welcome to join for one or both! We think these will be a lovely, relaxed way to connect with other attendees before the Symposium kicks off on Thursday morning.
