Virtual CreativeMornings Cluj on UnderdogTalk Cross Disciplinary Design
We are back with another virtual event and we will explore the global theme of July: Underdog
☕ Stay tuned, next week we will announce our special guest.
An underdog questions and expands what’s considered possible.
When others expect them to lose, underdogs must lean on their self-trust and hard won experiences to envision and fiercely assert new realities.
They do not dwell on what’s expected of them, but instead focus on
what’s not expected of them.
In a letter to his nephew, James Baldwin writes, “You were not expected to aspire to excellence. You were expected to make peace with mediocrity […] Take no one’s word for anything, including mine, but trust your experience. Know whence you came. If you know whence you came, there is really no limit to where you can go.”
Whether you’re an underdog yourself or you know someone who is, you can help raise the bar. Recognize that every day is an opportunity to participate in life-affirming problem solving and to, and that every moment is an opportunity to engage creatively with your sense of what is possible.
Call in and deploy your experience, your intuition, and your voice. The arena of change is calling.
Our Edinburgh chapter chose this month’s exploration of Underdog, Astrid Jaekel illustrated the theme, and Mailchimp is presenting the theme globally.
CreativeMornings are free breakfast lecture series for the creative community.
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 monthly in 208 cities all over to world, to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer teams organize local chapters to not only celebrate a city’s creative talent but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded people.
Thank you to MailChimp, WordPress.com and Basecamp for supporting our global CreativeMornings community!
CreativeMornings wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of global and local partners. With their support, this series of events can grow, and remain free and accessible to anyone.
