Être ensemble (malgré la distanciation sociale...!)
La COVID-19 nous amène à explorer des espaces inattendus, dans la recherche de se préserver soi-même et ceux qui nous entourent. La communauté CreativeMornings répond à l'appel de la solidarité et transforme ses événements.
En mars, dans le respect de la santé et du bien-être de tout.e.s, nous nous réunissons virtuellement avec notre communauté (VOUS!), qui rendez nos matins exceptionnels. À vous le micro!
First of all, know this, above all: We love you. We love your chapter. We love the heart and creativity you use to connect your local community and build safe spaces. And, we believe in giving a damn. That’s why, as we find ourselves in the uncharted territory of the current global health crisis, we have made an important decision regarding upcoming CreativeMornings events:
For the health and safety of our global community, we ask that all chapters stop all in-person gatherings from now until the end of April 2020.
We believe that the power of CreativeMornings is more important than ever. We encourage you to pursue creative ways to support your local community, especially those most vulnerable to the coronavirus, both its direct health effects and its rippling impact (on income, health care, food security, shelter, and beyond), and we call on you to summon your superpowers for building community and connection to combat social isolation and loneliness in a time of quarantine and social distancing. This is the time to keep spreading the warmth and love that CreativeMornings events are known for — but in different formats than usual.
This is a new world, and we’re facing it together as a community. Let’s problem-solve together and share ideas and tips for adapting your chapter’s activities to virtual spaces. We encourage you to share your ideas and your chapter’s approach to messaging, social media, virtual events, efforts for building connection and supporting your local community. Every idea counts!
CMHQ will continue to closely monitor this global situation. We will provide a follow-up message by mid-April with guidance about how to proceed for May events.
We are thinking of you all and sending good thoughts. As a global organization, moments like this show us how truly connected we all are.
All the virtual hugs,
