June 17th, Indianapolis Creative Mornings heard from Elle Roberts on this month’s topic of Broken. Elle is the founder of SheHive, musician, and a general badass.

We were hosted at Tube Factory artspace in the heart of Garfield Park, created by BigCar Collaborative. BigCar is a nonprofit organization and collective of artists that brings together all backgrounds and produces creative spaces and ideas. Their mission statement: “We bring art to people and people to art, sparking creativity in lives to transform communities.”

BigCar’s newly opened Tube Factory artspace is open, industrial, artful, welcoming, and bright.

Many, many thanks to our partners at Quills Coffee, Jack’s Donuts, and Yelp Indy for bringing the coffee and donuts; arguably the most important part of a Creative Morning’s event.


Elle began her talk by singing a song and telling us that “it’s never too late to go back and get what you’ve forgotten.” Being reminded that we are all broken humans that need healing was perhaps a better wake up call for the morning than the coffee was. Elle was able to completely transform our space and create an environment that felt comfortable and accepting.

We always love when a speaker is able to take us out of our comfort zones, and that’s exactly what Elle did.

Until next month,


P.S. - WE HAVE A SNAPCHAT FILTER! Look at those spraaaankle eyebrows on our donut BFF.
