CreativeMornings: Breakfast of Creatives, in the town of Champions

Posted by Todd Smith on December 22, 2015

Our Pittsburgh community is full of creative minds. The CreativeMornings monthly lecture series, a short talk and breakfast that’s free and open to all, offers a chance for us to share ideas.

This month’s CreativeMornings theme is Time and the December event was held at the Hill House, which formerly was home of the JCC. The name Irene Kaufmann Settlement is visibly inscribed on the facade.

It was my first time visiting this beautiful structure, which recently was remodeled. With the JCC celebrating its 120th anniversary this year and the CreativeMornings theme about Time, I’ve been thinking about the JCC in its early years, and all the creativity and dynamism that has fueled its continuing evolution.

CreativeMornings in Pittsburgh is one of 130 chapters of the organization around the world. This is how it works:

  • One of the chapters chooses a theme for the entire CreativeMornings community.
  • Each chapter is responsible for finding a speaker in their respective city and invites them to come speak for 20 minutes about that theme.
  • In Pittsburgh, every month a new venue is selected to host CreativeMornings.

Next month’s speaker hasn’t been announced yet, but you can check out the website and videos of previous speakers. I look forward to seeing you at the the next event!
