✨Create a Time Capsule: Quarantine Edition ✨
April 29, 11:00am - 12:30pm EDT. Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom
About this FieldTrip
Welcome to your personal time capsule: quarantine edition. This FieldTrip, part of the Time Well Spent interview series, is designed to both support you in capturing where you are at this unique moment in history, and help you think about how to create new perspectives, rituals, and habits for your days, as we navigate this unusual time together and apart.
While there are many ways to approach this exercise, our method will be to engage our imaginations through writing, drawing, sharing, and reflecting with one another. With this said, absolutely no writing or drawing experience is required to engage in this FieldTrip. Everyone is welcome.
We’ll provide beautifully designed, bespoke slides to support you on your journey, as well as friends, reflection/goal setting activity prompts, and mellow tunes.

ABOUT YOUR GUIDE
Alexa Kutler has spent many years learning how to build a career in the made-up field of Creativity, Design, and Adult Learning. A highlight from her journey includes her role as a Designer and Project Manager for the Creative Computing Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she organized and facilitated creative learning experiences for adults through the ScratchEd Meetups Network and T550: Designing for Learning by Creating.
At the heart of Alexa’s work is a desire to support adults in feeling confident, curious, and compassionate in the face of creative learning, personal reflection, and everyday life. She gleefully joined the CreativeMornings team in July 2019 as Partnerships Coordinator.
Local Partner — Harvest
Harvest is a web-based time tracking and invoicing application relied on by thousands of people around the world, from freelancers to small businesses to departments of Fortune 500 companies. Harvest founders Danny Wen and Shawn Liu had searched for tools to help their agency scale with more efficient methods to track time and send invoices. Unable to find one, they invested their own time, energy, and money into creating what they knew was a better way to run the business—and Harvest was born.
