Creative Mornings coming to Cincinnati

Starting on Friday, March 22nd, Cincinnati will get its first taste at a new creative event. CreativeMornings/Cincinnati will host its first gathering at the new 21c Museum Hotel. The first speaker, Bill Donabedian, is the founder of Bunbury Music Festival and has been involved in several other entertainment events around the city, including MidPoint Music Festival.

So just what is CreativeMornings?

CreativeMornings is a monthly, free breakfast lecture series, started by Tina Roth Eisenberg (@swissmiss) in NYC. Tina wanted an event that was more intimate, accessible, and something in the morning to get people inspired to create throughout their day. Kicked off in 2008, CreativeMornings has been growing steadily ever since. There are currently 49 chapters worldwide. Each chapter holds one monthly morning event which is free to the public and features presenters typically from the chapter’s city. The ultimate goal of each meeting is to promote local creative efforts, help support the community, and inspire attendees.

In part, we owe thanks to our very own Jeremy Thobe(@thobejp) and Joe Kruessel(@jkruessel) for helping to bring CreativeMornings to Cincinnati. Jeremy and Joe are a part of the creative team here at USDP. Over the last half of 2012, both have been working to assemble a great team of volunteers to get our chapter off the ground.

So why start a chapter here in Cincinnati? Check out this wonderful video produced by the team which explains it all.
