Helsinki is getting Creative

On Friday, the 29th of August, our team had the pleasure to attend and help out at the very first Helsinki edition of CreativeMornings events.

CreativeMornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series for the creative community. It started in New York City, and is now in almost 100 chapters around the world. Attendance is absolutely free of charge, and tickets are released the week of the event through the CreativeMornings website.

Themes & speakers

Every month the event has a different theme and speaker accompanied with coffee and some breakfast. This time the theme was Failure and the speaker Saku Tuominen, who took a really interesting take on the subject. Each event starts at 8.30 and finishes around 10.00 am.

What’s cool in all of this, is the fact that shortly after every event a video of the event is added on the CreativeMornings website. Check out the video from Friday’s event:

How to participate?

Each event is free but there is a limited amount of space, so a registration is needed to secure a spot in the event. The registration process has been made super easy 🙂 Just create a profile to the Helsinki community and then register for each event with one click.

Ticket registration is opened always on the Monday before the Friday’s event.

Did we already say each event is free to participate? This is made possible by sponsors. Our booncon PIXELS team is one of them, together with KLOK, Design Club, Kaffecentralen, SIS. Deli + Café, Théhuone and Cafebar Luomus.

If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, contact the Helsinki host Johannes via this email:

Looking forward to the next event later in September! Hope to see you there 🙂
