CreativeMornings/CLT

CreativeMornings/Charlotte is our free monthly breakfast lecture series – one of over 200 chapters worldwide – celebrating the creative spirit of the Queen City and featuring local speakers, live music, and tons more. The diverse audience is united by the belief that “Everyone is Creative” and a shared desire to make Charlotte a more vibrant, caring and connected community. Since 2015, CreativeMornings/Charlotte has existed to give our city’s fast-growing creative set a place to call home – to gather each month to get inspired, support each other, forge relationships and collaborate. We’re committed to showcasing Charlotte’s creative thinkers, makers, and doers on a global level. To celebrate our city’s creative talent and show the world who we really are. Every CreativeMornings gathering is free of charge (thanks to the generous support of local sponsors and venues) and open to anyone to attend – you just have to register beforehand to reserve your spot. (Fresh coffee and breakfast goodness are on us.) You can expect a room brimming with the best creative energy you’ll feel any morning that month. Our goal is to send you into your day/life with a surge of inspiration, lots of new connections + ideas + perspectives + ways of thinking, and a big smile on your face!
