CreativeMornings Summit 2016!
What began as a morning speaker series has grown into a global community of creative minds. So much of what we get every single month is due to the dedication of our incredible CreativeMornings organizers. Around the world, these organizers volunteer their time and energy to provide a FREE inspiring talk for their local creative community… and they bring breakfast! All of this effort adds up to be quarter of a million cups of coffee per year, 79,800 hours of work, and immeasurable amounts of inspiration.
This year we’re hosting the second CreativeMornings Summit for those incredible volunteer organizers. CreativeMornings Summit 2016 will bring organizers from across the globe together to exchange ideas, share best practices, and further develop their leadership skills. And it will be even bigger than the first CreativeMornings Summit. Why? Because we have nearly doubled in size and the #CMSummit16 will be in a place where everything is bigger - Texas. Giddyup!
We Can’t Do This Alone
If you’ve ever felt inspired by a talk, met a new friend or future employer, or indulged in a delicious donut, then this is your chance to say thank you and help make CreativeMornings even better. Today we’re asking you to help us continue fueling the magical experiment-turned-global-engine-of-generosity known as CreativeMornings.
We’re asking you to help fund the Summit. Whatever amount you’re able to offer will make all the difference. After CreativeMornings Summit 2016, organizers will bring home even more passion and energy to their local creative communities. You will see the return on your investment in the form of more fun, insightful, caffeinated, and inspirational CreativeMornings events!
No, you can’t put a price on making a connection or walking away with a deeper insight or inspiration, but let’s try! Please help us make CreativeMornings Summit 2016 a reality by backing our Kickstarter campaign.
About the Campaign
When you support the CreativeMornings Summit 2016 Kickstarter, you not only reap the rewards of the post-summit enhancements to your local CreativeMornings chapter, you’ll also get a reward! We’re offering rewards that range from music to golden tickets and beyond.
You can join in and support the campaign from March 11th to April 9th, so saddle up and kick in what you can to show the global CM community how much you care! Share the love using #CMsummit16.
We’re back on January 8th at the Denver Art Museum. Visit the event page for more details!
Gregg Deal is Denver Art Museum’s latest Artist in Residence and will be speaking at our January event on Language. We are so excited to be back at the Denver Art Museum! Stay tuned to our event page event page for more details!
This Friday, arrive promptly at 8:30 to join Puzzah! before the talk begins as they take us through a series of creative puzzles and brainteasers. They’ve designed a puzzle hunt that you can solve as you walk around and explore the objects and visuals that are present. Feel free to discuss your observations and ideas with the people around you - the more collaboration there is, the faster you will arrive at your answers!
We’re excited to partner with Puzzah! for this month’s CreativeMornings in Denver. If you’re into puzzles or puzzling group activities, Puzzah! has a full time puzzle room space at their Denver location at 14th and Blake where they combine game play and technology within themed rooms to create an immersive and one-of-a-kind experience for small groups.
In each puzzle room, players face a seemingly impossible mission. They must put their heads together use their wits and creativity to win the game. The goal of the journey is always to have fun!
Puzzah! aims to foster collaboration, abstract problem solving and self-confidence in everyone we meet. Their puzzle rooms take people away from schools and offices and inspire them to think creatively. They challenge everyone to see the possibilities inherent in the tools all around us, especially our minds.
Tickets for our next event become available Monday, 11/30! The event is on Friday, Dec 4th at The Source. More info here or use the big “More Info” button at the top of this page. :)
