This month's speaker Kim Werker is a writer and freelance editor who tries to make something – anything – every day. Many of those things are awful; some are not. Her latest book, Make It Mighty Ugly: Exercises & Advice for Getting Creative Even When It Ain’t Pretty, will come out at the end of August.
In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.
Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.
The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local sponsors, generous venues, and longterm partners.
Anyone can attend. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. Remember to set your alarm, and we’ll see you in the morning!
Free, but tickets are limited.
