Get ready for #CMInclusive! We’re so excited to have Yazan Kopty as out Speaker this month at the National Geographic Museum!
Yazan Kopty is a writer, oral historian, and National Geographic Explorer based in Washington D.C. His work centers around the acts of listening and narrating, focusing especially on memory as resistance and community-sourced history. He is currently the lead investigator of Imagining the Holy, a research project that seeks to examine and connect thousands of images of historic Palestine from the National Geographic Society archive with Palestinian community elders, cultural heritage experts, and field researchers to add new layers of indigenous narrative and knowledge to the images.
And just like that, CreativeMornings/DC celebrates another full year of great speakers, performers and venues! If you were at #CMWater, you know it goes without saying that having The Cornel West Theory kick off the night was an incredible way to mark our 6th birthday celebration. Then, hearing Violeta Edelman and Robb Duncan’s beautiful love story-turned-booming business called Dolcezza really put the cherry on top of the night.
MAJOR shout out to all our volunteers who helped us pull off the night, special thanks to our partners and vendors including Ogilvy, Flatiron School, Artemis Ward, Dolcezza, We the Pizza, District Donuts and the Hirshhorn Museum. Check out all our pictures by Maruicio Castro on Flickr now!
March’s theme is WATER
It’s the main source of all life. The lifeblood element that makes up 60% of our bodies. It’s the liquid that we don’t drink enough of, yet waste effortlessly. It’s home to millions of species, mysteries, and undiscovered knowledge. We know more about the stars in the sky than the depths of our oceans. We can use it to save lives. If used foolishly, it can take lives. We think there is an abundance, yet only one percent can be touched. If we don’t protect our waters, then what will happen to life? Our Perth chapter chose this month’s exploration of Water and Sofia Varano illustrated the theme.
