The second team to be celebrated in our #StillsLoves series are the wonderful team at CreativeMornings, Cardiff. The team offer a monthly home (figuratively, not literally) for the creative folk of Cardiff to meet, greet and share ideas.
CreativeMornings is global. Each city has their own host (and team) who are charged with organising a monthly event; including locations, speakers and refreshments. And, brilliantly, each month every CreativeMornings event in every city, GLOBALLY, is centred upon ONE theme.
For example, January’s theme was ‘Mystery’, February’s is ‘Moments’. Speakers in every city are invited to share their story, and to express their thoughts or interpretation on the theme.
There’s something truly exciting and somewhat magical about having a global network of creative minds engaging with the same theme.
In order to give you a bit more of an idea of what the magic is all about, here’s a video from the CreativeMornings website:
We also believe that CreativeMornings manifesto is something to celebrate, taken from their website:
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.
There is a lot to love about this manifesto!
The team at CreativeMornings, Cardiff is headed up by the excellent Melin Edomwonyi. When asked to summarise CreativeMornings in a phrase or sentence she said:
“Beautiful and creative minded people coming together to share the love. (And coffee and breakfast and inspiration but most importantly love)”.
Melin sums it up pretty well!
So, whether you’re a creative based in Cardiff, Cape Town or pretty much any city in between, we recommend that you head over to an event – you won’t regret it. For that reason, and for the passion which the network exudes,
