Dubai Media City hosts Creative Mornings

DUBAI, November 6, 2014

Dubai Media City, the Middle East North Africa region’s largest hub dedicated to the media industry, recently hosted the first in a series of monthly chapters of Creative Morning events to be held in Dubai, UAE.

Creative Mornings, a monthly breakfast lecture series for the creative community held in 99 cities around the world including Stockholm, Milan and Barcelona, features short talks from inspiring individuals who themselves have experienced a creative and exciting journey to get to where they are today. Past speakers have included Flickr’s co-founder, the creative director of Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, and the president of Rhode Island School of Design in New York.

Held under the global theme of ‘Cross Over’, the inaugural Dubai event, the first to be held in the Middle East, welcomed esteemed speakers Marc Stringa, currently based in London working within a major multinational practice focusing on city level planning, design and strategy, and Tahir Shah, founder of Pakistani pop-up restaurant Moti Roti and recently nominated Restaurateur Of The Year, who shared their insights into the importance of promoting creativity, fostering ideas, and supporting the decision to cross over into the unknown, whether this is starting your own business or creating something that hasn’t been done before.

Mohammad Abdullah, managing director, Tecom’s Media Cluster, said: “Creative Mornings provides an ideal platform for like-minded, creative people to come together to share ideas and knowledge and to hear inspiring stories from creative professionals and entrepreneurs. The event has supported local creative communities around the world, and I am delighted that Dubai Media City has been able to support Dubai’s inaugural event. We will continue to work very closely with the organisers going forward, and I look forward to welcoming the team again for the next edition.”

James Piecowye, host of the Dubai chapter of Creative Mornings, said: “I would like to thank Dubai Media City for their support and for enabling this event to happen. Creative Mornings started in 2008 out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community, and has grown into a worldwide celebration of creative talent. Dubai has a real entrepreneurial spirit, home to imaginative and innovative people from around the world, and we are very excited to work with Dubai Media City in hosting monthly events going forward.”

The next edition of Creative Mornings will be held on November 20th, under the theme of ‘chance’. – TradeArabia News Service
