Thought provoking lecture and discussion today from Ingrid LaFleur:
“I realized living here that we live in magical moment, we should redefine it …It’s always been my concern that we aren’t being radical enough in our city.”
“Afrofuturism doesn’t fear the apocalypse, it is an opportunity for transformation.”
Thank you to Ingrid, N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art, Detroit Creative Corridor Center, Detroit Lives!, Vanessa Miller, The Gem Bakery, Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company, and everyone else who made this morning possible!
Our April theme is “The Future” brought to you by Squarespace
From recycling bins to open-source ideas, this March we dissected “Reuse” across our chapters. April is arriving in full force, and we’re jazzed to announce our next theme: “The Future” brought to you by Squarespace. San Francisco chapter host Erika Hall selected the theme, and the talented Frank Chimero illustrated it.
Writer/artist Austin Kleon will speak at our shiny new Austin, TX chapter. Other speakers include location software maker/explorer Amber Case (Portland), and Catherine Rohr, who founded an accelerator program for ambitious entrepreneurs with criminal histories (New York.)
To find the April event closest to you, keep your eye on CreativeMornings.com, or follow your local chapter on Twitter. As always, free tickets are available starting the Monday before the talk.
The future is nigh!
Join us in the future (April 5th)! For Ingrid LaFleur RSVP on Eventbrite!
