A Big House Event supported by Mainframe from QUAD.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.

CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local partners, generous venues, and long-term global partners. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is creative.

DECEMBER THEME - ROOTS

A tree is made up of not only its colorful leaves, but also its bark, branches, and most of all — its roots. The roots exist to provide sustenance and a strong foundation for the rest of its body.Examine your own ‘roots.’ When you retrace them, what do you find?

In his CreativeMornings talk, James Victore shares, ‘The things that made you weird as a kid make you great today. But only if you put it in your work.’ Identify the things that ground you and what you’ve carried with you over time. How have your roots shaped who you are today?

The start of a brand-new decade gives you the perfect excuse to dig up the old and to nourish the elements that sustain you. Courageous, creative work begins below the ground.

Our Québec chapter chose this month’s exploration of Roots and Félix Girard illustrated the theme.

WHO IS VICTORIA TAYLOR?

People are the power source behind every brand and every business on this planet. Empower people and they will power your brand or business …

I eat, sleep and breathe customer experience, business development and the ability to create media strategies that not only capture attention and generate clients but also build meaningful relationships.

For over 15 years I have helped those I work with to think differently and design and create unique experiences that deliver beyond expectations of just great performance and sales (those come naturally as a result of delivering exceptional experience). I help businesses to reach the heart as well as the mind, creating an intimate, emotional connection that people want to feel with them time and time again.

When someone feels a connection with you, they don’t just want to experience that with you repeatedly, they also want to tell their friends and families so they can experience it too.

I help those I work with to understand that this is about building relationships for the long term, not simply generating short term transactions. When we make people matter, we don’t just survive, we thrive.

People. First. Always

WHO IS IT FOR?

Everyone is creative.

A creative life requires bravery and action, honesty and hard work. We are here to support you, celebrate with you, and encourage you to make the things you love.

We believe in the power of community. We believe in giving a damn. We believe in face-to-face connections, in learning from others, in hugs and high fives.

We bring together people who are driven by passion and purpose, confident that they will inspire one another, and inspire change in neighbourhoods and cities around the world.

Everyone is welcome.

WHEN IS IT?

Friday 24th January 2019 from 08.00-10.00am at QUAD.

HOW DO I BOOK TICKETS?

This event is free, but space is limited. Tickets are released one week prior to the event.

PLEASE NOTE: The Big House events are free to you, because they are funded – however there is a cost attached to them for us and we are a not-for-profit organisation. So, if you have registered to come, your place will have been paid for. Our events are very popular, and we often have a waiting list. With this in mind, if for any reason you are unable to attend it is very important that you cancel your ticket as soon as possible, to enable someone else to take your place.

We will be documenting the event. If you do not wish to be included in images or videos that may be used later for marketing purposes, please let us know beforehand.
