Meet Ole

What do you love about Oslo? The best thing about Oslo is that I can just hop on my bike and go everywhere I want. Whether I head into the forest and bike miles on miles all day. Or down to the ocean to go for an evening swim. Sometimes I’ll also just bike around to people-watch.

What do you enjoy most about CreativeMornings? Having a monthly theme makes CreativeMornings unique to me. I have not experience anywhere else I’ve been to a breakfast keynote. It gives the speakers a context for their talks I don’t think they would have had otherwise. It is also interesting to see how the different chapters around the world interpret the theme. Breakfast AND inspiring and educational input is also a killer combo.

What are a few of your favorite themes/talks/speakers we’ve had here in Oslo? Jimmy Westerheim and Nikol Mard – Check them out online!

What’s the best or worst advice you’ve ever been given? “Never do today what you can do tomorrow” - And that’s how procrastination was born.

How do you take your coffee? None - but i’ll take a Farris.

What are 3 things you do in your daily routine to feel productive, active, and grounded? I try to journal and meditate everyday. It helps feel good and keep track of the bigger picture. Biking everywhere keeps me active.

Share your creativity! What are you working on these days? I’ve just started a 365 photo project! The rules are simple – One image everyday. It should be shot and uploaded within the 24 hours of that day.

What are a few of your favorite themes/talks/speakers we’ve had here in Oslo? I really loved our most recent talk about purpose – and keeping in touch with why you’ve started something and being held accountable.  

What’s the best or worst advice you’ve ever been given? Best: Just ask! the worst answer you can get is no | Worst: Pee on your jellyfish sting, that’ll help

Meet Madara

I call myself a creative freelancer. I am a coffee and pancake lover and still fascinated by the TV show Friends. My hobby and passion is creating collages. I’m inspired by beautiful designs, color combinations, textures, music and patterns. My style is modern, colorful, clean, feminine and also fashion-related.

What do you love about Oslo? I am from Latvia and living there I was close to nature. The sea and forests are places that help restore my energy, so I am very happy that near Oslo there are many different opportunities to enjoy nature. I appreciate oslo’s diversity of cultures, people, food, art, architecture, and design.

What do you enjoy most about CreativeMornings?  I really enjoy the magic of attending early morning events. I am inspired by everyone’s energy filling the room. As a volunteer, I enjoy preparing events, welcoming visitors, and the opportunity to be inspired by the community. I really like the openness, joy, and support that is characteristic of our team. 

What are a few of your favorite themes/talks/speakers we’ve had here in Oslo? Topics and guests I would like to highlight are Barbora Kurcova (Wonder), Ilya C. Hendel (Justice), Jimmy Westerheim (Lost) and Nikol Mard (Invest). Each theme and guest has given me their added value and I feel inspired after each event.

What’s the best or worst advice you’ve ever been given? Take your mistakes as lessons.

How do you take your coffee? I start my day with a strong cappuccino

What are 3 things you do in your daily routine to feel productive, active, and grounded? I go for early walks in the morning, do a little workout session and make a to-do list for the day.

Share your creativity! What are you working on these days? I am working on creating new collages. The first step is to create a mood board and gather materials… magazines with a lot of images, moods, vibes, and texts are where I find my inspiration for my projects.
