CreativeMornings: The Future

Posted by Tina on May 22, 2013

We’re really excited about our new partnership with CreativeMornings, a monthly breakfast lecture series that’s currently hosted in 45 cities worldwide. Raleigh might be the smallest place on that list, but as one of the most educated cities in the United States—and the #1 “Wired” city by Forbes—we’re part of a special community of thinkers, doers, and sharers. And that’s only looking at conventional standards; there are plenty of youngsters and people with non-traditional educations making huge contributions, too. It only makes sense that we’d give these folks a platform, so that we might learn from them.

That’s where CreativeMornings comes in. On the last Friday of each month, a speaker gives a short presentation on a global topic. The talk begins at 9, followed by a brief Q&A session. The events are over by 10.

April’s topic, “The Future,” was addressed by Merge Records and Superchunk co-founder Mac MacCaughan. We shot and edited the footage from the event, which you can view here:

This Friday, April 24, local chef and restauranteur Ashley Christensen will speak to the topic of “Backwards.” Read about the event here. We’ll see you there!
