10x better than coffee
CreativeMornings is a free, monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types started by swissmiss in NYC. What began as an informal 50-person get together at the studio has grown into an 18 chapter (number soon to become outdated) global organization.
In New York, between 200-300 people gather one Friday each month for a 20-minute talk, free breakfast and coffee. Past speakers include design legend, Milton Glaser; Kickstarter co-founder, Yancey Strickler; and RISD President, John Maeda.
Thanks in part to the support from the ever-innovative Collaborative Fund, CreativeMornings are hosted today at local chapters around the globe thanks to amazing organizers in a number of cities including SF, LA, Chicago, London, Vancouver, Auckland, Zurich, and Milan among others.
As Breakfast Lecture Series Specialist, I’m charged to help take CreativeMornings to the next level which involves supporting new organizers, spreading the CM goodness via new content/initiatives, and helping craft and execute on our longterm strategy.
CreativeMornings has been referred to as a “TED for the rest of us.” At its heart, it’s about providing an accessible, homegrown environment for creatives of all shapes and sizes to meet in real life and learn together. Come check out an upcoming event in a city near you. It’s time to wake up.
