September 29, 8:30am • The Market Theatre • part of a series on Compassion

That 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 organisers. Around the world, these organisers 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 firstCreativeMornings 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.
