Our city is full of creatives and it shows. Check out these 5 creative offerings next time you are looking to be creatively inspired.


Creative Mornings

Creative Mornings events are held around the globe and we are lucky to have an Indianapolis chapter. Starting around 8:30 am, audience members are invited to a location around the city to learn from and be inspired by a chosen presenter. There are monthly themes such as “Curiosity” and “Movement” and presentations designed to ignite your creativity. Break the ice by grabbing a free cup of coffee and breakfast treats while connecting with fellow creatives in the city.

1 Million Cups

If you are an entrepreneur or want to learn from other creative entrepreneurs in the city, this weekly event is for you. Audience members can grab a cup of coffee and listen to local entrepreneurs share about themselves and the work that they do. Afterward, the floor will be open for Q+A to allow attending community members learn how they can assist or support the entrepreneur on stage. If you are an entrepreneur with a company less than 5 years old, you can apply to be a presenter!

Presentations are held each week at The Speak Easy at 8:00 am and everyone is welcome.
