part of a series on Reality
About the speaker
Last month CreativeMornings was all about risk — and the circumstances and perspectives that exist in order for us to take one. This month, we’re delving deeper into those circumstances and defining our realities. Reality, on the surface, feels so tangible; so concrete. But, in reality, it isn’t quite so simple. Our existence is made of several truths, always shifting under our feet.
Our speaker for this month, Anna Jackson, explores these apparent truths, helping their visibility in some cases, manipulating them in others to suggest alternate realities. A wearer of many hats, Anna is a professional collaborator, researcher, teacher and learner. Her curiosity and tendency to say yes has led to an involvement in a very diverse range of creative endeavours, such as co-founding documentary initiative Loading Docs, co-directing Transmedia NZ, blogging for The Big Idea, creating transmedia content and strategy for the theatrical production Pure and Deep and working with the Arts Foundation’s crowdfunding platform, Boosted.
Anna is now a lecturer at Colab, the ‘collaboratory’ for Design and Creative Technologies at AUT. Her current work explores the future of public media in New Zealand in a post-broadcast, multiplatform environment. She is also keenly interested in expanded documentary and interactive and immersive storytelling.

It’s tempting to get caught up in the latest and greatest, but we try to remember who we are doing this for and what it is we do best: roasting delicious coffee and creating meaningful coffee experiences for folks who simply love coffee. We roast coffee for our amazing customers; be they café owners or enthusiastic home brewers - coffee drinkers! And luckily, we still get to drink it too. At the heart of Supreme is people, and the way coffee connects us. Perhaps our core product is not, in fact, coffee, but instead, what happens over a coffee shared - generous hospitality.
At antipodes we believe the heroes of the table should be the food and fine wine so we chose a water source that has a mineral fingerprint subtle enough to refresh but not alter the palate. Antipodes is very proud to support CreativeMornings Auckland because everything we do in life requires a creative mind.

Bringing ideas to life. AUT is a place of learning where we learn to think in order to do. At AUT we turn theories into action. We can be full of ideas, but they mean nothing unless we bring them to life. Ideas add to what we already know and in turn enrich our lives. At AUT life will always be greater than theory.
