Creative Mornings - start the day in the right way...

by Startacus Admin

Hardly a week goes by these days without some new conference, unconference, event or festival being promoted targeting the creatives, the entrepreneurs and the startups. All good to see! However for many of us the location, the costs and the practicalities of being away from “work” for a few days at a time is far from ideal, no matter how interesting the speakers and the workshops may be.

creative morningsThis in essence is one of the main reasons why Creative Mornings is so good!
Founded in 2008 by Brooklyn designer, Tina Roth Eisenberg, known globally for her blog Swissmiss, Creative Mornings is a lecture series where like-minded creative people can come together for breakfast on one morning a month and at the same time hear a talk from an inspirational speaker. Creative Mornings was originally only based in New York but word soon spread and people in other cities all around the world started to host their own Creative Mornings; with the result being that there are now 34 Creative Morning chapters in 6 continents. Pretty impressive stuff!

Of course, with all these Creative Mornings happening globally, it means that there have been countless inspirational talks heard by some lucky people. And therein lies another reason why Creative Mornings rocks! All the speakers, all the talks have been filmed and archived. Realising the potential and the importance of this archive of stories, ideas and advice, Tina recently held a Kickstarter campaign to fund the building of an online hub to make this entire archive publicly accessible and searchable. And the result? The target of $35,000 was beaten on the first day of the campaign!

If you would be interested in starting a Creative Morning chapter in your city, you can apply directly via [email protected]

Great idea isn’t it? Meeting other creative and entrepreneurial people, listening to an inspirational speaker, having breakfast, even more importantly, having coffee! and still getting back to “regular work” by 10 a.m. (whatever “ “regular” work is...)
