Home is a place. Maybe the place you go at the end of the day. Maybe the place you haven't left in a year. Perhaps home is the place where you grew up. Or the place where you've shared meals with loved ones.
But home is also a feeling. And a connection. It's where we can feel safe. Where we have a sense of belonging and acceptance.
How can we make space for everyone to feel safe and to feel like they belong? How can we create a radically inclusive Dallas? Our city. Our home. Let's get creative!
CreativeMornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Currently meeting in a virtual format, we welcome everyone to join us for creative activities, live local music, and a thoughtful discussion with our featured speaker.
This month we explore the theme of "home" with Jerry Hawkins. Jerry Hawkins is the Executive Director of Dallas Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (DTRHT), part of a national 14-place initiative by The W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Dallas TRHT’s mission is to create a radically inclusive city by addressing race and racism through narrative change, relationship building, and equitable policies and practices.
Local music from Andrew Holmes who is releasing a new album in August. Holmes specializes in lyrically poignant alternative music. His songs reflect a mix of meaning and melancholy, crafted with keen observation, capturing moments worth remembering with lyrics you won’t forget. His melodies rise and fall to keep you on the edge of a feeling, always passionate and authentic. His crisp vocals and range are both warm and inviting, with a winsome vulnerability.
