A gathering for creative, smart communications
May 3-4, 2018
Artist + Creative Consultant
Mailande Moran is a writer, artist, speaker, consultant, and self-described “creative weirdo.“ Curiosity has been her guide through a constantly surprising career, which has included: starting an artisan-made textile company; creating the first tablet classroom in a Kyrgyz village school; teaching design thinking in Cuba; drawing on the backs of her grad school business cards and posting them to Instagram, which changed her life forever; helping people clean out their closets; and, yes, nonprofit strategy and communications.
Mailande has spoken about creativity, risk, identity, and education at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business, East Carolina University, and TEDxDurham. When she’s not encouraging people to make the things they dream of making, you can often find her singing somewhere or walking her pint-sized Golden Retriever
