Register to attend and help make CreativeMornings Cleveland in 2018

We imagine a world where we’re seen and heard, respected and valued, not for our appearance and privilege, but for our work and character. A world where anyone, anywhere, has equal access to opportunities and resources to become the person they dream about. The formula for equality is a work in progress, and this work is not done from the few with power but rather through the power of community.

Equality is harmony. Harmony isn’t achieved through one instrument; it’s a collaboration, a symphony of sounds that adds richness and texture to the bigger picture. The pursuit of equality is a long-term game, an unraveling of outdated processes that no longer serves the future we imagine or deserve.

This month’s global exploration of Equality is chosen by our Johannesburg chapter, illustrated by Katt Phatlane, and presented by… Adobe! Yes, you read that correctly.

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with Adobe to stretch our collective mission in connecting and empowering creative communities around the world.  

With Adobe’s indispensable tools and decades of experience in enabling creatives to bring their ideas to life, along with CreativeMornings’ unwavering commitment to unite and inspire cities with face-to-face connections, we’re honored to be partnering with another company that is eager to champion the future of creativity and add fuel to the engine of generosity. Read more about it!

This month’s global exploration of Beyond is presented by Shutterstock. The theme was chosen by our Bengaluru chapter and illustrated by Ranganath Krishnamani.

We are tempted by the possibilities of the beyond. Whether it’s deep space, the range of our talents, or a first date, our minds conjure stories that carry us aloft.

This unwavering, deep-seated determination to go far and wide is the fire that which keeps us alive, always marching forward, determined to lift the veils that are hiding unfounded beauty.

What a trait to embody. Without the urge to go beyond perceived limitations or boundaries, we would be a dull, stagnating species indeed. The price to go beyond anything is never free; we’re called to face our fears, and the reward of reaching that next level is the privilege to do it again.

Please enter Wyse Advertising at the entrance next to Hodges restaurant off Euclid Ave. marked “Enter Here” on the map. 

The best option for parking is on the street when you can find space. Unfortunately, metered street parking is the most affordable option for this event so you may want to arrive early if you’d like to take advantage. There are many parking lots that you can see marked on the map, as well as garages in a close proximity with varying prices between $5-15. We would not recommend parking in the garage closest to the entrance (indicated ‘don’t park here’ on map) because it is very limited, and also very expensive.

That’s all, see you tomorrow! 

The Cleveland chapter of CreativeMornings hosts events on the third Friday morning of ever month. Like all CreativeMornings events around the globe, the events are free to attend, feature live talks from successful creative professionals, and provide the general creative community a regular opportunity to meet and learn with each other.

The program is a catalyst for cross discipline conversation and idea exchange locally and globally. In Cleveland, events take place in different unique venues around the city and are captured on video to share with the world.
