CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Their free, monthly events feature a short talk, Q+A and breakfast. CreativeMornings started in NYC in 2008 and has since grown to 130 cities all over the world. The local chapters not only celebrate a city’s creative talent but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded people. CreativeMornings happen one Friday a month from 8:30am to 10am.
On November 6th, 2015, CreativeMornings will be headed to the University of Denver for an event on the theme of “Work” featuring associate professor in Emergent Digital Practices and artist Laleh Mehran.
Laleh Mehran creates experiential art. Her process for making artwork involves both “art” + “work.” Lots of work! It’s in this process of making that ideas can shift, visuals can expand, and production methods can improve – all enhancing the final artwork. Laleh will speak about that process, her work, and the hard work required to create and sustain a creative career. Laleh’s work was most recently featured for the Biennial of the Americas at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver – check out CPR’s coverage for an interesting recap of her work and background or visit her website to see a full gallery.
The event will be held on November 6th in the Special Events Room (AAC 290) at the Anderson Academic Commons at 2150 E. Evans Avenue with doors opening at 8:30am. Registration is required, since seating is limited. Tickets will be available on the CreativeMornings website starting Nov 2nd at 9am.
November’s event is sponsored by the University of Denver University Libraries who are working to bridge the gap between faculty, students, and their community through creative activities and events like CreativeMornings.
