“We believe in the power of community. We believe in giving a damn. We believe in face-to-face connections, in learning from others, in hugs and high-fives.”
I recently discovered this amazing event that takes place not only in San Diego, but in other cities around the world. Creative Mornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. It’s an event that features coffee and donuts (yass!) and a short presentation by a creative professional.
This even is perfect for everyone. You don’t have to be a designer of any kind; I’ve come across several people in marketing, PR, startups and also entrepreneurs. They’re all there to gain a bit of inspiration and creativity while also meeting random strangers. Yes, there are some people who simply attend for the coffee and donuts and that’s absolutely fine.
From design legends to local creatives, the presenters vary every month. No two presentations are ever the same because Creative Mornings establishes a global theme for each month. April’s theme was “Beyond” and it’s up to the presenter to decide how to craft their presentation around the term. Ramel “Real” Wallace’s was simply outstanding. Full of energy and truth.
I encourage you to attend your local creative mornings. If you’re at work during this time, no worries! There’s a “How to Convince Your Boss” section that you can review to make it possible to attend. Worst case scenario, you can view the video footage once it’s uploaded to the website, but I encourage you to attend in-person at least once.
