CreativeMornings start in Santa Fe
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.
