Cre­ative­Morn­ings start in Santa Fe

Pasatiempo - - NEWS - — Michael Abatemarco

Cre­ative­Morn­ings be­gan in 2008 to ful­fill swiss­miss de­sign-blog founder Tina Roth Eisen­berg’s de­sire to pro­mote dia­logue and net­work­ing among New York City’s cre­ative com­mu­nity over break­fast and cof­fee one day each month. The con­cept caught on: Now, more than 100 cities around the world have or­ga­nized lo­cal chap­ters of Cre­ative­Morn­ings to cel­e­brate their area’s tal­ent. The con­cept — break­fast and a themed talk by a mem­ber of the com­mu­nity — hasn’t changed, but the top­ics do monthly. Pre­vi­ous talks have cen­tered around sex, chance, ink, color, ed­u­ca­tion, and free­dom, to name a few. The theme for April is hu­mil­ity.

In part­ner­ship with Al­bu­querque’s Cre­ative Star­tups, the New Mex­ico His­tory Mu­seum (113 Lin­coln Ave., 505-476-5200) hosts the first Cre­ative­Morn­ings pro­gram in Santa Fe. The event kicks off the se­ries that al­ter­nates be­tween Santa Fe and Al­bu­querque each month and fea­tures talks by au­thors, artists, graphic de­sign­ers, and other cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als. The Santa Fe event starts at 9 a.m. on Wed­nes­day, April 8, with Bob Martin, ex­ec­u­tive and artis­tic direc­tor of the Lensic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, as the speaker. There are also pastries and cof­fee from Santa Fe Bak­ing Com­pany and live mu­sic by Gypsy jazz quin­tet the Laser Cats. The Cre­ative­Morn­ings event is free. The talks are recorded and posted on­line at www.cre­ative­morn­ings.com.
