JULY 20 | BUSKEY CIDER + CMRVA 

In partnership with Buskey Cider, CreativeMornings RVA is hosting a happy hour to raise money for the Women’s Monument coming to our fair city. An initiative of the 2019 Commemoration, the planned Women’s Monument will honor the significant role of women over 400 years of Virginia history and entrepreneurship as well as their impact upon the nation as a whole. As part of the event, we’re also creating a place for folks to write to their representatives and ask that they support the arts. Big thanks to 1708 Gallery and Native Collaboration for sponsoring the cards and postage. Let's pack the house at Buskey, donate to this cause, and show our support for the arts in #RVA! #AmericanEvolution #cmrva #richmondiscreative @Commemorate2019 @CreativeMornings_RVA

“When you turn your brain off, you open yourself to more experiences.” 

Dave Gau, #RVA based motion graphics, artist, animator, improviser, facilitator, director and cartoonist, took us on a serendipitous journey this May. The challenge to trust ourselves in the moments of serendipity we create resonated with us all.

BEYOND | RUPA SINGH

“If each of us were given a choice to make a positive impact or negative impact with our purchases - we’d always choose the positive impact.”

This April, we aimed high and far. Rupa Singh of Love This shared her journey of going beyond the product to see the story it tells. She challenged us to make ethical shopping choices by placing value on the design of a product as well as the social, environmental, + economic impact it has. 

Take a listen.
