CreativeMornings with Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere


How excited am I to announce next week’s CreativeMorning?

Charlie Todd, the inspiring force behind Improv Everywhere will be our upcoming speaker and I am *thrilled*! I am a huge fan of Charlie’s Flash Mob Missions and can’t wait to hear more about the person behind it all.

For those of you not familiar with Improv Everywhere: Improv Everywhere regularly organizes scenes of ‘chaos’ and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 100 missions involving tens of thousands of volunteer undercover agents. The group is based in New York City. Some of my personal mission highlights are:

Frozen Grand Central:

Invisible Dog

It’s in fact the Invisible Dog mission that connected me with Charlie of Improv Everywhere, Keith Schweitzer of No Longer Empty and finally Lucien Zayan our host this month and the inspiring force behind the Invisible Dog Space in Brooklyn. (Here’s an article on Lucien’s mission over at the NYTimes.) The Invisible Dog Space is at 51 Bergen Street, right off Smith Street and calls a three story factory building its home. The Invisible Dog Space includes an art gallery, artist studios, a huge open event space, an amazing freight elevator and a basement filled with vintage finds. (I was lucky enough to get a full tour and truly fell in love with the building and cause!) A big thank you to Lucien for generously hosting this month’s CreativeMorning.

Interested in attending? Make sure to r.s.v.p via email quickly as we usually fill up fast. Please tell us your name and what industry you’re in. (Check your inbox for a confirmation email!) CreativeMornings start at 8.30am, end at 10am and are FREE of charge. I am sorry but we’ve reached full capacity!

This month’s breakfast is generously sponsored by FieldNotes. Inspired by the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list, the Draplin Design Company, Portland, Oregon in conjunction with Coudal Partners of Chicago, Illinois bring you “FIELD NOTES” in hopes of offering, “An honest memo book, worth fillin’ up with good information.”
