To date, CreativeMornings/TO has been very successful at coalescing Toronto’s creative community around informal and unstructured learning and inspiration. Month after month, our events continue to sell out in minutes with waitlists longer than the number of attendees, but we’re still not reaching the full potential of this community.

Toronto is a massive city, the fourth largest in North America, with a bustling diverse population of more than 2.5 million people. While we continue to serve the creative heart of Toronto by hosting our events centrally, we could do more to feature and showcase creativity in every corner of Toronto.

That’s why we’re proud to announce CreativeMornings/Toronto/POPUPs. Smaller events which feature local creativity to a local audience, that are showcased to the world via creativemornings.com.

We hope to host at least two POPUP events this spring and summer, and hope you’ll come along for the ride. To get involved in planning these events, please get in touch with CreativeMornings/Toronto Trailblazer Christina Hug or contact us at toronto@creativemornings.com.

Hi there, we’re CreativeMornings Toronto, a monthly breakfast lecture series for Toronto’s creative community. We connect, inspire and delight young creatives with lectures, discussions, and environments that allow them to do something special: become more of themselves.

We’re seeking four passionate leaders within Toronto’s creative communities to take us into our third year, but also to grow our audience, stature and influence over Toronto’s creativity.

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.

Check it out.

As always, @swipedesign will have a pop-up shop at #cmto 19… Right beside their store! World’s closest pop-up? With this quality merch, we’re not complaining!
