Creative Mornings: Navida Nuraney

December 07, 2018

We are thrilled to invite you to our December 7th CMVan where Navida Nuraney will speak to our theme of Tradition.

Navida has devoted her career over the past 15 years to the creative sector. It started with architecture, then transitioned to graphic design, where she helped launch a start up which sparked her entrepreneurial spirit. While completing an MBA at the Sauder School of Business, she worked at the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art in communications. From there she took on the role as Executive Director at ArtStarts in Schools. ArtStarts is a charitable organization all about expanding the role of art in education and promoting the value of creativity in young people’s lives.

Her early leadership development was rooted in the mantra, be the kind of boss you always wish you had. Over the past eight years, Navida has kept organizational culture number one. As the saying goes: organizations don’t succeed - people do.

About Creative Mornings

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.

The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local sponsors, generous venues, and longterm partners.

Anyone can attend. Register a profile at to be alerted to the next Creative Mornings Vancouver event.

Additional Info: Due to popularity causing tickets to sell out too quickly, CM Van uses a waitlist as a registration system (please register only once) from which they randomly award tickets using a lottery system. Anyone can attend. 

If you cannot use your ticket, please inform Creative Mornings ASAP so they can allocate the ticket to individuals on waitlist. Remaining applicants will remain on the waitlist and be informed if a ticket becomes available. Anyone who hasn’t checked in by 8:45am on morning of the event forfeits their tickets. For more information see the Creative Mornings Vancouver website.

A breakfast of coffee, tea, and breakfast sandwiches are provided to registered participants. First come, first serve.
