Thomas Fox is known as the organizer of CreativeMornings Cleveland, the movable monthly breakfast programs that featured speakers on a variety of topics in a variety of locations. That series went (mostly) virtual this year. Fix also founded the Agumboot Music Festival, which took place in 2016.
Now he’s putting a new spin on both projects, merging them into one as Greyt Culture. To launch it will contain two elements: Greyt Outdoor Concerts and CreativeMornings Cleveland talks, both available virtually on YouTube. He actually laid the groundwork a year ago, planning a full schedule of events in 2020 but, well — you know.
The digital CreativeMornings Cleveland are an offshoot of the six-year-old live events series, which will showcase a variety of “inspirational creators.” The re-launch of the program opens with endurance athlete Katie Spotz, who rowed across the Atlantic to raise money for clean water programs.
The digital Greyt Outdoors Concerts are a new element. Inspired by the pandemic, the series pilot was filmed outdoors in the Grand River Valley in partnership with the Western Reserve Land Conservancy and features the music of Cleveland-area singer/songwriter Cassidy King.
“While the series is showcasing artists, it’s also bringing attention to organizations that preserve public lands and make these important spaces exist for our common use and mental health,” says the press release.
Fox’s plan for the music series is to travel to public lands across the country and film alternative virtual reality 360° insertion point versions of each concert, to give audiences an in-depth feels for America’s natural beauty.
