Started out of a need for creative minds in New York to gather and mingle back in 2008, CreativeMornings has now spread to over 100 different locations throughout the world. This breakfast lecture series for the creative community meets once a month, with every city giving lectures on the same theme (picked by a member city), on the same day.
Milwaukee photographer Paul Oemig started the Milwaukee chapter, CreativeMorningsMKE. "There are so many incredible people in the community," says Oemig. "Just to have an ongoing space for connections to happen is a really important."
Listen to the story above to hear more from a CreativeMorningsMKE meeting I attended. The theme was "Ink" and Brian Holoubek from Heavy Rotation was the guest speaker.
