“Everyone is creative. Everyone is welcome.” This is part of the manifesto of CreativeMornings–a global monthly breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Their motto in the spirit of our Community Series is just part of the reason why we love and support our local CM chapter. It is also what inspired our joint #CMCreativeTravels campaign that will take one person from our community to a CreativeMornings event of their choice anywhere in the world. But first, a little background.
CreativeMornings originated in NYC and is now happening in over 150 cities around the world. Ever since we stumbled upon our first CM talk years ago, we've been great fans of the series and the values it promotes, since they resonate very deeply with our own: creativity, inclusivity, connection and collaboration. That's why when we found out that Sofia, the city of our headquarters, is about to become part of the global CreativeMornings family, we could not wait to get involved. We reached out to the organizing team and said we wanted to help out. Ever since, we cannot imagine spending every last Friday morning of the month any other way - and it's been almost a year now.
CreativeMornings chapters around the world are hosted and organized by volunteers – all-round amazing people. Thanks to local partners, such as SiteGround, the events are always free and welcome everyone: from web designers and developers to film directors and architects - the early birds who cannot wait to start the day and get their hands on to the next thing. CreativeMornings Sofia quickly turned into our passion project because it nurtures a community of individuals driven by mutual inspiration and enthusiasm. And we’re super lucky to get to work for a company that understands the need to support and help such initiatives, because SiteGround also believes in face-to-face connections, in learning from others and finding new creative ways to grow.
We got so used to our local CM meetings, we wanted to think of a way to keep in touch with the community even during Summer when most people are traveling and our monthly breakfast got smaller. That's how we came up with #CMCreativeTravels to tag and collect all our travel photos under one roof: creativetravels.siteground.com. To join the campaign and share your travels with us, simply tag your Instagram photos with #CMCreativeTravels by the end of September and who knows - it might take you on a trip to a CreativeMornings event near or far.
