To celebrate the end of another fantastic CreativeMornings year, we would like to turn the mic to our audience. We’re inviting anyone interested in New York, London, Milan or Geneva, to apply to be a December CreativeMornings speaker. Three people will be chosen (for each chapter) to give an eight minute talk on Friday December 14th.
The application deadline is November 30th, 5pm EST. The application form can be found here.
On behalf of CreativeMornings, we are running a SmallKnot campaign to help raise money to pay for damages. If you’ve been to a DUMBO CreativeMornings at Galapagos, please consider supporting the campaign. Let’s help Robert Elmes, the owner, get back on his feet. Let’s show him that his generosity with CreativeMornings (and so many other event organizers) didn’t go unnoticed.
DUMBO, let’s help Galapgos!
