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.
CreativeMornings is the world’s largest face-to-face creative community. Of course, we have all experienced these face-to-face throughout our lifes – at school, in the neighbourhood or at work. The power of a our CreativeMornings/Vienna community is to connect with each other, to learn from each other and support each other, which makes our work so much fun.
Today, attendees gather in over 200 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.
In the Summer of 2016 I started out as the main Event Photographer for CreativeMornings/Vienna. I had the honour of being part of an amazing and creative team. So when the opportunity arose, Sandra Ulrich and I took the chance and we have been hosting the Vienna chapter of CreativeMornings together with our amazing team since January 2019.

In 2020 I created a magazine together with a few members of my team. This magazine is a love declaration to the project we believe in, to the creative city where we host our events, a team we trust and admire and the amazing community we want to connect. Our ambitious goal of the events is to connect and strengthen the local creative scene in Vienna.
The Vienna chapter is the only location in the CreativeMornings world that publishes a magazine.quote Andrea Zehetner Dec. 2019
The first issue will be released in May on the 6th anniversary of CreativeMornings/Vienna. It is a retrospect and insight into »a year with CreativeMornings/Vienna« and the creative community in this amazing city. We introduce our team, speakers, guests, topics and places, who inspire us, motivate us and whom we love.
