The term ‘serendipity’ was coined in 1754 by the aristocrat Horace Walpole. While reading a Persian fairytale called “The Three Princes of Serendip,” he wrote to a friend to share his realization. “The princes were always making discoveries, by accident and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of.” When you hear stories about serendipity, they have an undertone of delight, pleasure, and sometimes profound transformation. These unforeseen, joyful accidents are often the opportunities we seek and cherish—and above all, they’re moments that we don’t forget. How might we see, embrace, or cultivate serendipity? In 170 cities throughout 62 countries, we’ll hear about the unplanned moments that led to something new. #cmserendipity

CreativeMornings is a free monthly breakfast lecture series bringing the creative community of Brisbane together. This month, we’re going Beyond by wrapping our arms around the Gold Coast community as we host our April event at WAREHOUSE No.5. Our mission for Free Event: Beyond with CreativeMornings is to completely fill our community board. On one board, you record down what skills you ‘can offer’ and on the other, you call out for skills you 'could use.’ If you’re not good at promoting yourself and talking about what you do, let the board speak for you. Thanks to Eightball Media, you’ll find our digital community board here. Each month we will record down what is written on the boards at each event. This will become our go-to resource for collaboration. Click and scroll below. You might just find the yin to your yang.
