CreativeMornings in Dubai
CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. It started in 2008, when its creator Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) wanted an ongoing and accessible event for New York’s creative community. She came up with a simple concept, breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month, free of charge and open to anyone.
Since then, CreativeMornings has expanded to 98 cities and Dubai is one of the latest addition and will host its first ever Creative Mornings session on Thursday, 30th October 2014 in the CNN Building in Media City from 8.30am - 10.00am.
The theme for this month's talk is "Crossover" and will include two speakers:
Mark Stringa who will talk about "City-Scale urbanism and how creative approaches are required to change behaviours at a mass-scale, and how that translates into everyday creativity, and the rise of the so-called Creative Class."
Tahir Shah who will talk about "taking a leap of faith from a safe job into the unknown - the trials, tribulations and pitfalls of being an independent food retailer in a big city, with even bigger guys."
