Communities are built on common ground and sustained by human connection. That connection is driven by communication, and communication is achieved with language. Yet our CreativeMornings community shares many more languages than the 40+ we speak. There are so many languages of CreativeMornings: generosity, love, hugs, high-fives, passion, excitement, creativity — the list goes on. Really, language boils down to expression. And isn’t that what creativity is really about?
Our first speaker for 2016 was well versed in the language of creativity. The power of Courtney Sina Meredith’s work is evident in performance and on the page. Meredith’s neologism for the energetic, urban, polygot culture of contemporary Auckland that brings the island and the city into profound collision, and acts as the crucible of new global identities.
