CreativeMornings, global creative organization, launches Birmingham Chapter

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – January 15, 2019 – CreativeMornings™, a global breakfast lecture series for the creative community, is pleased to announce the launch of its Birmingham chapter. The first event will take place Friday, January 25, 2019, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. at Forge coworking space in The Pizitz. Tickets are free, but must be reserved in advance. Attendees will have the opportunity to network and hear from a local guest speaker in a TEDx-style talk.

“Birmingham is the perfect addition to the CreativeMornings global community,” said Julie Schneider, community manager for CreativeMornings HQ. “With its long-standing impact in the publishing and creative industries, robust and evolving food scene, and rising status as a technology and entrepreneurship hub, the city of Birmingham is already bringing to life the CreativeMornings manifesto: to bring passionate and purposeful people together to inspire change around the world.”

CreativeMornings Birmingham will meet on the fourth Friday of every month, rotating through various venues throughout the city. Local businesses and restaurateurs sponsoring the event will provide complimentary coffee and breakfast while attendees mix and mingle. The chapter will select local speakers, based on a global theme, for a short talk with Q&A.

Birmingham chapter organizer, Madison Hall, said, “Our goal is for CreativeMornings Birmingham to become a platform for creatives from all industries to build relationships that better serve our community and give our city the global recognition it deserves.”

Tickets are available through the CreativeMornings website starting Friday, January 18, 2019 at 8:30 a.m. This month’s guest speaker will be Billy Ivey, award-winning copywriter and brand strategist, and founder of #napkinisms.

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone. Today, thanks to volunteer hosts and organizers, and the generosity of both local and global partners, attendees gather in 196 cities around the world.
