WHO WE ARE

Forth is an organization focused on creating intentional events that celebrate community and connect people.

We do this in three ways: quarterly salons, public events and custom services. Our quarterly salons bring together Chicago's creative women entrepreneurs. We host four seasonal events each year with a curated guest list ranging from hands-on craftswomen to designers of all kinds, tech-savvy disruptors and hand illustrators, writers, producers, photographers, connectors, stylists, artists, and more. We style each event both visually and with food and drink, at a new venue every quarter. We also create a theme to inspire the salon's flow. Our goal is not networking, its authentic conversation and connection, creating space and time for bright ideas. Talk is honest, open, real, and often very, very funny.
