Everyone is creativeCreative Mornings is the world’s largest face-to-face creative community.
Come join us at the Creative Mornings / Charlotte Chapter.
CreativeMornings is coming at you in a way that nothing else is.
CreativeMornings/Charlotte is our free monthly breakfast lecture series 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.
A Global Creative Community
Part of an international community with over 200 chapters around the world, we launched the Charlotte chapter in 2015 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!
Everyone Is Creative…Everyone is Welcome
Our Global Manifesto articulates our beliefs and guides our programming:
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 neighborhoods and cities around the world.
Everyone is welcome.
Driven by these words, CreativeMornings/Charlotte is committed to connecting and empowering our fellow citizens during the “cultural tipping point” occurring in our city right now.
The Stage Is Set
Indeed, the time and place couldn’t be more perfect for CreativeMornings to thrive in the Queen City. First, Charlotte hits a sweet spot that’s hard to pull off: it’s economically healthy, extremely family-friendly, and packed with artists and creative people of all kinds. Furthermore, we boast more than 150 non-profit organizations in the arts, sciences, history, and heritage, alongside an impressive array of schools, incubator spaces and co-working spaces for Charlotte-based entrepreneurs, freelancers, designers, artists, and other creative types. We’re also one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, and with such growth has come an exhilarating surge of creative people, both native and transplanted. CreativeMornings/Charlotte strives to converge them in one room every month – an open-ended experiment to see what impact such concentrated creative energy can have on a city and its citizens.
