"Commitment to your craft; Commitment to your community."

At the Downtown Bellingham Partnership, we work to improve our local community and economy through inspiring individuals and businesses to think outside the box and push themselves.  A monthly creative lecture series, Morning Jam features a different speaker at the top of their creative field who discusses their profession, what inspires them, and what drives them. 

Morning Jams are on the third Wednesday of every month at 7:30am and free to the public. We have toast, jam, coffee, and bring you folks from within our community who are committed to what they do.  Thank you to the Pickford Film Center, Avenue Bread, Bow Hill Blueberries, and The Black Drop Coffeehouse for their generous donations to this program. 

August Jam: Meghan Yates

August 16 | Commercial Street Plaza | 7:30am

Meghan Yates is an artist, musician, seminary-trained interfaith minister and teacher. Originally hailing from Maine, she moved to Bellingham with her husband in 2014. She'll be sharing about her path as an Artmonk, and what it looks like to be committed to Contemplative Creativity; her daily painting practice and why she teaches this approach to accessing and sustaining creativity in these dynamic and somewhat turbulent times.

This month's Morning Jam will be hosted at the recently-redone plaza on Commercial Street (directly across from Brandywine Kitchen).
