CreativeMornings: The Audience Takes The Stage!
A suuuper special event on Dec. 16 in NYC and LA
To celebrate the end of an exciting year for CreativeMornings, we sent out an open call (you can watch our silly video here) to our amazing audience members to find 6 inspiring CreativeMornings-goers to take the stage in NYC and LA. We were overwhelmed with the response, so we caved and we picked 7 people to give an 8min talk at December CMs.
We’re soo excited to announce the allstar lineup! *drumroll*
