The mission of #ATLFAMILYMEAL is to feed, nourish and support hospitality workers and their families experiencing hunger and joblessness in the metro Atlanta community. As a community of chefs, restaurants, suppliers, community stakeholders, and hospitality workers, they are working in unison to build new bridges in the community that allow us to feed our Atlanta hospitality family.

Join us for a Q and A with #ATLFAMILYMEAL Founder Michael Lennox who is also the founder of Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall, Muchacho and Golden Eagle. Learn his story and how to help give back to Atlantans in need during this time.

Every idea starts with a sketch. Join Elevate Experiences and Billy Boughey as you learn how to turn your creative ideas into focused action. This workshop will teach you how to share and execute new ideas.

In this session, you will learn the 8 steps to making ideas come alive. Learn how to use the whiteboard, tap into the behind the scenes moments to get your idea off the ground, take an idea from live to virtual and so much more. We will explore the Elevate conference room and virtual studio during our time and watch how we activate ideas.

The Founder and President of Elevate Experiences, Billy Boughey, will host this FieldTrip. Billy has experience working with brands such as Delta, Chick-fil-A and Coca-Cola as a Keynote speaker, host, and culture coach. He hosts his own podcast called Created for Experience and has been featured in Business Insider and Forbes. He released his first book titled Culture Reconstructed in January 2020 as a way to document his love for using events to enhance organizational culture.

The Georgia spring weather is turning out beautiful so far, so it’s fitting that our next theme is Nature. On May 29th, we welcome Hannah Palmer to speak. Hannah is a writer and urban designer obsessed with her hometown of Atlanta. Her award-winning book, Flight Path: A Search for Roots beneath the World’s Busiest Airport is part memoir, part cultural history of the New South, and Booklist called it “a passionate and gorgeously written reminder of why urban planning matters.”  Hannah works as a designer and community organizer on urban conservation projects. For the last two years, she has led Finding the Flint, a campaign to reveal and restore the lost headwaters of Georgia’s endangered Flint River.

March Event Change - It’s virtually the same

Don’t let the cancellations all around you get you too down. We’re joining the fray, but for the first time in the history of CreativeMornings Atlanta this month’s event will be a virtual live broadcast. While there will be NO PUBLIC GATHERING, don’t worry — coffee will still be on us that morning (details coming very soon) and Dr. Jerome Lubbe will still be sharing his brilliant thoughts on identity, brain function and the enneagram. There’s a high chance this will be the most-viewed Creative Mornings talk yet. Are you in? Sweatpants strongly encouraged.

Huge thanks to Friendly Human, who will be filming and simulcasting the event live for us!

Located in the heart of the Georgia Tech campus, the Ferst Center for the Arts serves as a showcase for the presentation of concerts, lectures, dance, film, and theater. It is also one of our largest venues to date! Today we released nearly 1,000 tickets for this Friday’s event, meaning there’s little chance of being left on the wait list.

We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to invest in the Atlanta creative community and join hundreds of fellow #ATLiens for a morning of inspiration and connection. We hope to see you there!For parking information please visit https://arts.gatech.edu/directions-and-parking-0
