This episode is made in partnership with CreativeMornings
CreativeMornings is a free get-together that is hosted once a month at various venues in Phoenix. It involves breakfast, fresh coffee and a short talk by a chosen guest speaker.
There are currently over 205 chapters of CreativeMornings around the world, and each month, volunteer hosts and their team members organize these conversations around the same theme for the public to participate.
The best part is that it celebrates the city’s creative talent and promotes an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. Now don’t think you have to be a designer or photographer or artist to come, because everyone is creative and everyone is welcome.
