September 6, 8:30am • Vonder Club House • part of a series on Muse
December’s theme is Education
Learning from each other is at the core of every CreativeMornings event. Whether ambitious students or seasoned makers, we’re waking up early in 100 cities (and counting!) to reflect on new ideas. This month we’re excited to celebrate that spirit with the theme Education, presented by CreativeLive.
The theme was chosen by our São Paulo team and we were thrilled to have U.S.-based Christopher David Ryan lovingly craft our illustration.
From Margo Kane, a performing artist who uses dance to empower First Nations youth (Vancouver) to Alexandre Taillefer, a media entrepreneur and chairman of the Montréal Museum of Contemporary Art (Montréal)—speakers around the globe promise to teach you something new.
Set your alarms! We’ll see you bright and early. And take care: This time the Berlin event is not an a Friday but on Thursday Dec 11th 2014.
Our month on Education is presented in partnership with CreativeLive. Co-founded by Seattle speaker Chase Jarvis, they’re dedicated to making creative education available to all by offering hundreds of classes in design, photography, business and more. As they say: “Creativity is the new literacy.”
November’s theme is Chance
From Baltimore, Maryland to Perth, Australia, organizers around the world are stepping up to the plate to take risks and start CreativeMornings chapters. Taking a chance is at the heart of every CM chapter and we're celebrating those uncertainties this month with the theme of Chance.
The theme was chosen by our Sydney team and we were excited to have Sydney-based illustrator Jeremy Lord create this month's theme illustration.
From FM Supreme, a hip-hop artist, who uses language as a tool for positive change (Chicago) to James Hurman, Founder and Principal at Previously Unavailable (Auckland)—this month is all about taking risks and the opportunity or challenges that they yield.
October’s theme is Crossover
From Los Angeles, USA, to Jeju, South Korea, CreativeMornings chapters now span over 85 cities around the world. At the heart of each month is a global conversation, crossing over coastlines and oceans to speak about the intersection of creativity and the month’s theme—whether that’s Sex, Freedom, or, most recently this October, Crossover.
This month is all about the creativity that happens in the space of crossover. Speakers this month are looks at the theme from a range of perspectives, each bringing their own to the table. A few include:
- Doree Safrir, Executive Editor of Buzzfeed, speaking on her storied past and the ever-changing trajectory of journalism (Los Angeles)
- Jerzy Vetulani, professor of natural sciences, speaking on the functioning of the human brain and relations between neurobiology and various social and cultural phenomena (Krakow)
- Ben Blumenfeld, Co-Director of Designer Fund, sepaking on the crossover of design, technology and business (San Francisco)
- Raz Simone, hip-hop artist, speaking on recently “crossing over” from writing poetry to writing lyrics (Seattle)
- Ida Skivenes, a full time food artist, shows how food could be fun, colourful and creative (Berlin)
The First CreativeMornings Summit

For the first time, CreativeMornings had invited all of CM’s chapter hosts to join the HQ in downtown Brooklyn for the Summit. From Jeju, South Korea, to Berlin, Germany, organizers and their teams found their way to The Invisible Dog Art Center, Bergen Street, Brooklyn for two days of workshops, talks and discussions on best practices and the future of CreativeMornings.
One of many highlights for the international organizers was the visit of an “Original NYC Creative Morning” last Friday with Steve Powers as speaker. 300 von 450 visitors were amazed, when 150 attendees were suddenly asked for a group photo on stage.
As a typographer your Berlin host Jürgen Siebert couldn’t stand the fact, that this decoration at The Invisible Dog Art Center misses two points.
September’s theme is Color
September’s theme, COLOR was selected by Paris and illustrated by Manhattan based Erin Jang. Our official worldwide partner this month is Squarespace, local sponsor is Shutterstock (Win a bike!), and our speaker is the great Christian Hanke (EdenSpiekermann).
August’s theme is Failure
This month’s theme might be Failure, but it should be anything but a flop. This month is all about those epic flunks and graceless tumbles. The theme was selected by our colleagues at Creative Morning Singapore and illustrated by Brooklyn based photographer Bill Wadman.
Creative Mornings Berlin will take a break in the coming month. If you’re also on vacation or traveling, maybe you have the opportunity to visit a Creative Morning far from home. Take the chance!
July’s theme is Heritage
We're getting back to our roots this month as we talk about Heritage across 85+ CreativeMornings chapters around the world, brought to you by MailChimp. The theme was chosen by our Cape Town, South Africa team and depicted by Nigerian-born, Brooklyn-based illustrator Olaleken Jeyifous.
As always, free tickets are available starting the Monday before the talk.

June’s theme is Minimal.
If simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, then this month’s theme is our most cosmopolitan yet. We’re talking about Minimal across 80+ chapters around the world. The theme was chosen by our Aarhus team and we were thrilled to have Andrew Neyer as the illustrator.
From Scott Wilson, founder and principal designer at MNML (Chicago), over Jürgen Michalski, a Corporate Designer from Realgestalt (Berlin), to Marek Holeček, a top Czech rock climber (Prague), speakers this month will look at what minimal means in creativity and design, as well as how to get a maximum out of it.
