Additional details

Hey CreativeMornings fam! We’re doing our part to flatten the curve and going digital!

Join us for a community forum online around this month’s theme: IDENTITY.

Join us online at!

Grab a cup of coffee and see your favorite #CMPHL pals at the same scheduled time, but while at an acceptably social-distanced space like your couch, bed, or book-nook!

Don’t worry! You’ll still hear later from the rad speaker we had lined up. Hillary Rea has graciously agreed to rejoin our queue of speakers for a future in-person talk in lieu of our online community forum.

What makes you, you?

Your identity is made up of multitudes — the stories you carry, the music you love, the challenges you overcome, the books you read, the communities you’re a part of, and more. But your identity is a colorful blend of not only what you consume or create, but also the questions you ask and what you’re willing to learn.

In her CreativeMornings talk, Lucy Bellwood shared, “When we box ourselves too tightly into a single identity or career path, we deprive ourselves of the nutrients necessary to remain connected to the world around us. We are lacking in vitamin curiosity.“

The things that make you unmistakably you are not just the eclectic edges, but the simple pillars, beliefs, and values that you simply can’t shake. What sort of spirit or energy do you bring to a room? How do you show up in the world? What are your pillars?

The most unique care and love you can give to your creative identity is to craft it with your own hands.

This month’s theme IDENTITY, is timely.

With so much uncertainty, we may feel like we are losing grasp on our regular routines, our usual freedoms, and a bit of who we were and who we are. We know we will all come out stronger on the other side of this, but in the meantime, things are scary and stressful.

In a time of crisis and feeling unsettled, we are especially grateful to our local Philadelphia community as well as our CreativeMornings global family.

We have cancelled our March and April in-person talks and are working on a virtual community conversation to take place on Friday, April 3 and a virtual talk on Friday, April 27.

We’re here for you and hope you are staying safe.

XO, Alain, Avery, Jere, Justin, Keanan, Laura, Laris, Michelle, Omar
