Creative Mornings wants you to share a ‘Moment’

That's the theme for the Feb. 23 installment of the local talk series — and you're invited to apply.

If you’ve ever been to a Creative Mornings breakfast lecture, then you know it’s the place where D.C.’s distinguished creatives take the stage to share lessons from their work. Just recently that proverbial stage (the location changes) has featured the artists No Kings Collective, Michael Lastoria of &pizza and Adam Cole of NPR.

Now that stage could feature you.

February’s Creative Mornings topic is “Moments,” and organizers are soliciting applications from speakers who would like to give a five-minute talk around this topic.

“It may be celebrating our city’s and country’s creative heroes and heroines for Black History Month…or highlighting the moments that inspire and drive your creativity…or challenging your peers to make the world a better place in this critical moment in time,” organizers write. “Whatever moments you would like to share, we’d like to hear them!”

Five speakers, representing a range of definitions of “Moments,” will ultimately be selected to talk on Feb. 23.

Got a Moment in mind? Just one catch — you’ve got to apply fast. Submit a brief description of your talk to the Creative Morning organizers before Friday, Feb. 10 at 12 p.m. For more information on what that should include and where to send it, check out this post.

We’re sure there are lots of inspiring moments happening all the time in #dctech — share ’em.
