In an interesting twist on Co-Working, Creative Mornings are a collaborative series of seminars organized by a group of New York designers. By pooling their efforts, desires, and needs for meaningful and stimulating in office seminars they are able to host larger gatherings and throw bigger events than they could indiviually, or at all for the small firms participating.
From the Flickr set of Swissmiss:
'Creative Mornings' is a monthly morning gathering of creative types. Each event includes a 10 minute lecture, followed by a 20 minute group discussion. The gathering begins at 8:30am with the topic presentation starting at 9:00am. The whole thing closes down at 10am. The events are hosted at studios in and around DUMBO, but we're open to suggestions (and of course people willing to host 50+ people on a Friday morning).
And being the media creatives that they are they follow up the presentations with online videos for those that could not make it. This all sounds like a tremendous idea for workers in small offices.
