Why Creatives Run the World

  • Tendue 2505 Southeast 11th Avenue Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

In every creative person’s life, there are moments when we are faced with a decision between pursuing creativity as a career or as a side interest. How do we navigate through that thought process and reorganize all the different factors that go into making this decision?

“Why Creatives Run The World” is an exciting opportunity to discuss and explore how five local Portlanders are redefining creativity in their community. We believe that all creatives need a supportive environment to say “What I Am Doing Has Purpose” and from there have the ability to elevate their minds, refocus their goals, follow their passions, and transform their community.

So join us, as Vyvyan Doan (Startup Founder of the Creative Gym) and her featured guest speakers will be presenting topics related to:

  • The Power of Evolving our Creative Mindset: Reversing Fear

  • How Fear & Busyness Affects Creativity and Authenticity

  • Three Behaviors for Creative Badassery

All tickets purchased for this event will go toward fundraising for “The Creative Gym.” Come learn more about the plans of this workspace and its goals to support the creative and artist community!
