How does OK Go come up with their unique ideas for their music videos?
We are celebrating 24h of waking up, around the world, with 1h sensory-tuning WalkShops. (Walking workshops) It’s free. It’s fun.
We are kicking off the 24h bonanza at 8:30am NYC Time on Thursday 9/22 as an official virtual NYC chapter event. Join us, from anywhere in the world. (If that time slot doesn’t work for you, you have 15 more to choose from, because you know, 24h!) All you need, is your phone, headphones, shoes and be ready to walk and wander.
Learn more over on the The World Wide Wander! Sign up! 2,000 other kind creative humans already have!
Mark your calendars! Next Thursday, September 22, at 8:30AM ET, CreativeMornings/NYC is shooting the starting gun of a 24-hour global wander marathon!
Time travel with us for a moment. Last November, CM/NYC took to the streets for the first time under the guidance of creative nonprofit Street Wisdom’s founder David Pearl. Together we unlocked our minds and unblocked our creativity with every step.
So when our friends at Street Wisdom asked to join forces for a 24-hour around-the-world relay of their magical walkshops (i.e., walking workshops), we said YES. Best of all, we’re starting the marathon off in New York City! Join us for the first-leg of the World Wide Wander. You can partcipate from anywhere in the world. There are 16 timezone slots to choose from. Sign up and then join us from your phone and walk the streets with us, wherever you are.
The World Wide Wander. It’s free. it’s time. it’s fun.
(ps: In case you don’t know: I am the founder of CreativeMornings, the community I wish existed when I moved to NYC 23 years ago.)
I enjoyed this talk. In her first book, How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy, multi-disciplinary artist and writer Jenny Odell argues that taking control of our attention from the capitalist forces determined to monetize it and reconnecting with the world around us is a critical form of resistance.
Always coming back to this one.
CreativeMornings/NYC is hosting a super special free event this Friday:
I did one. It changed me.
David is PURE MAGIC!
In this beautiful CreativeMornings/Ottawa talk singer-songwriter Kellylee Evans talks about the importance of exercising courage in everyday life.
Loving this talk by former Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler. With a simple four-square grid Yancey shifted his entire perspective on decision-making, his sense of self, and his relationship to the world. His concept of “Bentoism”, inspired by the Japanese bento box, is a way of framing your choices with an eye to the future, beyond your own self-interest, and with consideration for your community and the next generation. I’ll definitely be applying this to my life. Grateful.

I need no convincing to sleep.
I keep coming back to this brief talk by Larry Legend. Reminding me that People > Craft.
This talk by Tiffany Watt Smith is a beautiful insight into the history of human emotions.
Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert is my all-time favorite. It’s my go to when I need grounding and centering. I had *no* idea what happened leading up to the concert. As he arrived at the concert hall he noticed that the piano was out of tune. He was livid and said he couldn’t play. But he had empathy for the organizers and decided to conquer the challenge. Absolutely inspiring. He flipped a seemingly impossible situation. AIt became the most successful solo jazz album in history! Wonderful!
I was lucky enough to experience this talk here in NYC, a few weeks ago, at a TED Salon. I walked away completely mesmerized by this glimpse into a world I didn’t even know existed. Thank you Alex Rosenthal for lifting the veil on one of the world’s most complex puzzle hunts, the MIT Mystery Hunt.
