part of a series on Survival
About the speaker
The ability to overcome adversity and withstand waves of turbulent times is part of the human spirit. In our hardwiring, it is the oldest of threads that also fuels our creativity.
Stories of survival resonate because they remind us of our inherent power to adapt and change. A choice is always present, and survival is about choosing to move forward.
No one knows this more than our speaker for this month, Lana Lopesi. After attending art school, Lana quickly ditched the esteemed job title of artist to be a critic of art and culture. Lana’s writing has featured in a number of publications in print and online. She currently writes a monthly column for Design Assembly called Graphic Matters where she is also a Contributing Editor looking after the Aotearoa Design Thinking series. Lana is the Visual Arts Editor for The Pantograph Punch and was Founding Editor of #500words. Recent residencies include a research residency at RM Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand and Taipei Artist Village, Taipei, Taiwan. Upcoming projects include lei-pā: a curatorial project in collaboration with Ahilapalapa Rands at ST PAUL St Gallery, 2017 and Cold Islander a group exhibition at Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato, Hamilton, 2017.
Join us this month at Studio One Toi Tū for a reminder that our fragility and complexity doesn’t make us weak; in fact, it makes us stronger. Tickets will be released at 11am Monday 26 June.

The Midnight Baker started as side project, spurned forward by a love of baking treats late at night and a quest to find wholesome, healthy alternatives that catered to my Gluten & Dairy free dietary requirements. Disappointed by the varieties of bread on offer, I set myself the task of researching and refining recipes with the goal of being able to offer a loaf that ticked all the boxes for dietary requirements without comprising on taste.
We’d like to think that most creative thinking happens with coffee at your side. So when given the opportunity to support CreativeMornings, it made sense for us to shout everyone a cup of coffee. It’s also a chance for us to showcase what we do, what’s important to us - our links with people we buy from, the various methods of making, and most importantly, share the coffees we source from around the world.
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.
