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.
In this CreativeMornings talk, Liz Jackson, founder of The Disabled List, talks about the misconceptions around disability and shares practical tips on how to design with disability, not for it. This is an important talk.
Thinking about the future of AI causes anxiety. We see its flaws and also its immense potential to improve our lives. But there is much work to be done. According to Josh Clark, a UX designer and design leader who helps organizations build products for what’s next, he shares four design principles that can improve how we build AI. The catch: it starts with us.
Simon Sinek’s recent CreativeMornings talk just went live on our CreativeMornings Podcast. In his talk, Simon shares insights on millennials, technology, and the importance of empathy in good leadership. We flourish when we’re seen, when our work matters, and when we connect with and understand one another. And he asks: Are you willing to do the hard work of building meaningful relationships?
“Creative people are being asked to work on really important problems, problems that matter in the world, and the good news is we’re coming up with new-to-the-world solutions, and so it’s a really good time to be a designer.”
Speaking on the global theme of Freedom, David Kelley took the stage at CreativeMornings/New York in May 2014 to speak on the design revolution. Designers now have the respect and freedom to make a difference. Championing for design to be more inclusive in its meaning, David looks to give everyone confidence in their ability to be creative. Now that everyone has the power of creativity, what will you do with it?
In this CreativeMornings Podcast you can listen to the renowned musician MOBY speak on moving to LA from NYC, creativity, inspiration, and the freedom to fail. You can also watch the recorded talk here.
John Zinsser wants us to wake up, and really “connect”. In this eye-opener CreativeMornings Charleston talk, John goes out on a limb and challenges the audience to have real connection in this world. He reshapes our understanding of what we truly risk on a day-to-day, to help us understand the need for connecting as a means for growth, and trusting others on the outskirt of separation.
(This is a Reel our San Diego put together. It so beautifully shows the magic of CreativeMornings)
There is not a day that goes by where we don’t get an email being asked to share our CreativeMornings secrets. That’s why, on June 25th, for the first time ever, my team and I are sharing how CreativeMornings scaled its community from one chapter to over 140, in a one day intensive workshop.
If community building is on your mind, com and learn how we built ours of 1,500 volunteer organizers and continue to engage 180k attendees annually in 55 countries around the world. My team and I will share our findings from the last 8 years, what worked what didn’t and we’ll also make time to workshop any challenges you’re facing in your community.
In this CreativeMornings talk Todd Henry speaks on how at the end of your life you’ll point to a delta, a sum total of change that exist in this world because you were alive. And how the choices we make every day on where we want to put our focus, assets, time and energy ultimately determine the body of work that we build.
Ideally, you consider yourself a mini-Maria Popova, consuming and digesting content faster than a human body can process a Hi-Chew. You listen to Design Matters with Debbie Millman, admire the lush lettering of Jessica Hische and when we say “fck you, pay me”*—you think Mike Monteiro. If you know any of these people (or what a Hi-Chew is), you’ll fit right in.
Andrew Hessel, a futurist and catalyst in biological technology, delivers a powerful and thought-provoking CreativeMornings talk about the interplay between ethics, society, and life. Through the lens of his research in 3D-printing cancer-fighting viruses, Andrew challenges us to consider how we build ethical frameworks in our careers and in our lives. 27mins well spent.
