"CreativeMornings is a free breakfast lecture series with volunteer-led chapters in 223 cities and 67 countries around the world. Since 2008, we have provided an accessible (and fun) place for creative communities around the world to meet up, make friends, and get inspired.  This month's event will be extra special as we continue to blur the lines between innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity, we celebrate the leadership of those who have helped us grow into one of the biggest and most robust CM chapters in the world and welcome a new chapter in our story and explore the topic of DARE with Jason Clark of Via Studios.
