Call to Artists: Speak at Creative Mornings

Got a story to tell about CRAFT?

This month, we’re letting the Audience Take the Stage.

That’s right, it’s your turn. We want Y O U to give a mini-CreativeMornings talk (5-6 minutes) at this month’s event on June 29. A handful of you will have the chance to share your story on the theme of craft.

Want to put your name in the hat to be a speaker? Here’s how:

  • RECORD a 60-second-MAXIMUM video snippet of yourself answering these two questions:
    • Who am I?
    • What’s my perspective on CRAFT? i.e., a glimpse of what your 5-6 minute talk will be about.
      No personal or business “pitching” allowed!
  • EMAIL it by 5PM on Tuesday, June 12. (We’ll notify you if you’ve been selected by Thursday, June 14).

That’s IT! Best of luck 

Looking for a little inspiration? Here’s what the Mumbai chapter has to say about CRAFT:

A craft is the instrument in which the authenticity of your being is communicated.

Your craft is like a portal to your inner world, and as an artist, it’s your duty to pull it out of the vortex. Craft is a catalyst for our identity and the soil for cultivating meaning.

It behooves us to realize that who we are and become—our values, beliefs, thoughts, observations—influence what comes out of the violin, sketch, or photograph, not the other way around.

Important Dates and Times
Tuesday, June 12 at 5PM – Submissions Due!
Monday, June 25 at 11AM – Tickets go LIVE
Friday, June 29 at 8:30AM – Join us for the talk!
