The fantasies of past decades are becoming reality today. So why should we be stuck on a negative reality and fantasy of failing?
Risto Kuulasmaa takes us on a journey through our own fantasies and challenges us to enter to playful fantasy. What kind of party would we set up for ourselves with one thousand euros? And with ten million euros for refugees in Helsinki?
After working as an television and online media executive at the Finnish Broadcasting company Yle, Risto is currently leading Tubecon, the biggest Youtuber convention event in Scandinavia.

Transparency about who we are could be the key for building trust
Our October speaker, author and journalist Hippo Taatila says the biggest lesson he’s learned is getting to know himself and recognizing his own cognitive processes. Transparence about one’s own processes could help us in our own projects as well as working with others. [Photo: Andrea Balogh]

August goes WEIRD
Marco’s works move between architecture and art embracing terms such as third generation cities and urban acupuncture. He is inspired by nature – also the human nature.
July's theme is LOVE
CreativeMornings/Helsinki will be having a summer break during July, but don’t despair… we’ll be back in August! Meanwhile, the rest of the CreativeMornings community will be pondering on the theme of love… What is love? Why don’t you find out how the other cities responded to the theme.
The theme was chosen by our Ljubljana chapter and illustrated by Lucy Engelman. This theme is presented globally by Wix. This month, 148 cities will participate in advancing our understanding of love by tapping into the richness of diversity in worldviews within our community.
It's June and REETA KRONER tells us about being BROKEN
Reeta Kroner is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. She has been clean and sober for 2,5 years. She was wondering how she could ever look anybody in the eye after the way she had treated herself and everybody around her. Asking for help took both courage and humbleness. But she realized that being honest and facing all the painful things she had done was the only way to start building a new life.
Here is the teaser of the talk:
May is all about REALITY with JAMIE MACDONALD
This month’s theme is REALITY. It was chosen by our CM friends all the way from Belo Horizonte, illustrated by the talented New York-based British Craig Ward and presented by our amazing global partner Shutterstock.
The speaker here in Helsinki will be JAMIE MACDONALD. He is a Canadian artist who’s been living in Finland for 14 years. He started in theatre, went to performance art, and is now doing stand-up comedy and games. To him REALITY is a social phenomenon: we’ve decided what is real together.
The event is on Friday 27th of May at Design Museum 8.30-10.00AM.
EVERYONE IS CREATIVE. EVERYONE IS WELCOME.

April brings along with it RISK as the global theme of CreativeMornings.
The event in Helsinki is held 8.30-10.00AM on Friday the 29th at Design Museum. Welcome all!
Pekka Salokannel and CHANGE
Our this months speaker, Pekka Salokannel, is not only an amazing 3D pioneer but also a regular attendee of CreativeMornings/Helsinki.
Having inhabited the richly varied worlds or industrial design, education and the broader ‘maker’ community our clever speaker Pekka Salokannel knows a thing or two about these perpetually shifting sands. He opens interesting doors to us about the exponential nature of growth in this digital age and how change polarises populations.
Come to Design Museum on Friday the 18th and hear Pekka explain why the only real constant we know is change. Maybe he’ll even share some tools to help us plot the ‘path to now’. It will be all about CHANGE. Welcome!
Our global community keeps on growing
We at CreativeMornings/Helsinki are so proud to be part of the growing CreativeMornings family!
Everyone is creative. Everyone is welcome.
