Ok, so the Jetson's may have got it wrong, so this April, all of our whopping 49 CreativeMornings chapters around the world hosted talks that addressed our theme “The Future”. It was picked by our San Francisco chapter host Erika Hall, and illustrated by the talented Frank Chimero.

A big thank you to GAPC (gapc.com) for filming and editing and Magpie Jewellery (ww.magpiejewellery.com) for being our main sponsors. This month’s host was the historic Arts Court. Arts Court, the former Carleton County Courthouse, was built in 1870 to replace the first courthouse and jail of 1842 that had burned beyond repair. Designed by architect Robert Surtees, the building boasts a number of Italianate features, including window surrounds, rusticated quoins and tall chimneystacks. The cornerstone includes gold, silver and copper coins and bank tokens of the period. Two years after the new courthouse on Elgin opened in 1986, this limestone building was transferred to the City of Ottawa. Arts Court now houses more than 25 arts and heritage organizations.
