When Kansas City native Brooke Barrier returned home in November 2013, after several years living on the East and West Coasts, she was surprised to find that CreativeMornings
– an international lecture series she had been turned on to – had not yet made its way to town. The organization, founded in New York in 2008, has over 100 participating chapters around the globe, from Milwaukee to Singapore.
Barrier decided to take up the cause herself - with the help of a dedicated team
- and over the last few months has been working to launch the first event for the Kansas City chapter of CreativeMornings. On Friday, June 19, CreativeMornings KC makes its debut.
