September's Theme is Color

CreativeMornings is not shy of color.

Now in 88 creative cities (with a unique color for each one!), CreativeMornings is excited to kick off a full month on the theme of “Color,” brought to you by Squarespace. The theme was chosen by our Paris team, and we were thrilled to have the very talented and crafty Erin Jang illustrate it in her signature, cheerful style.

September is all about the impact of color, whether it’s the color of our work or the diversity of our cities. Inarguably stated by past NYC speaker and Rainbow Queen:

Color is power. It is physiologically impossible to be in a bad mood when you’re wearing bright red pants. — Jessi Arrington

Speakers will include Rebecca “Bucky” Willis, founder of Bleeding Heart Design in Detroit; Heidi Taillefer, surrealist painter in Montréal, Jessica Serran, Prague-based psycho-cartographer, and Ginger White Brunetti, Denver cultural city planner.

Squarespace is CM’s Official Partner for Online Publishing, and it’s a pleasure to have them present this month’s global theme. Through their support, CM can continue to launch free events in cities around the world.
