This October, we’re excited to announce our theme of “Play.” The theme was chosen by our organizer Jade Tang and the Auckland team and depicted by Auckland-based James Stewart for our monthly illustration.

The speakers this month touch upon multiple aspects of play from Max Tempkin, founder of Cards Against Humanity (Chicago), Tomáš Pilař, a young Opera Director (Prague), to Jemma Kahn, the primary illustrator and principal storyteller in ‘The Epicene Butcher’ who will be performing her take on Kamashibai (Johannesburg).

As always, free tickets are available starting the Monday before the talk.

Game on.

Our ongoing Breakfast Provider Sense Appeal gave a sneak peek at some future breakfasts they’ll be serving to the CreativeMornings community in Toronto >


We love this video made by Sense Appeal, the catering crew of our Toronto Chapter, speaking about how they theme the food served at their local events.
