“Craft” – CreativeMornings
Last week I attended my first “Creative Mornings” talk at Station House in downtown St. Pete. For those of you that don’t know, CreativeMornings is a free breakfast event series that supports, inspires, and connects the creative community in more than 180 cities across the world. Each month they hold a free event in St. Petersburg that features coffee, light breakfast, and a 20-30 minute presentation from a local creative that aligns with the global CreativeMornings theme for that month. Each presentation is video-recorded, photographed, and uploaded to our website to be shared with the entire international community.
This month’s topic was “Craft” and the featured artist speaking was Steven Kenny (Who is also my assigned mentor through Creative Pinellas. How cool!)
“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.”
