On November 26th – An event becomes a movement
Change-makers, visionaries, artists, innovators, entrepreneurs and ‘ecopreneurs’ unite to celebrate the beauty of the West Coast and work towards protecting our shorelines and our youth.
We’ve partnered with some of British Columbia’s top photographic talents and four of our province’s most deserving charities to bring you a unique opportunity to network with some of Vancouver’stop change makers, converse on meaningful social and environmental topics, and view a unique gallery of extraordinary imagery focused on Western Canada.
The evening will feature live music, delicious canapés, as well as beer and wine. More importantly, you will have an exclusive opportunity to show your support by purchasing some of our talented photographers works both as specialty printed artworks and as ethically sourced and environmentally conscious Ltd. Edition scarves. Fifty percent of all sales will be donated to the event’s featured charities.
Featured photographers and charities include:
Chris Collacott– British Columbia’s stunning landscape jumps into focus on 8 foot metal backdrops as 30 time Epson Award winning photographer Chris Collacott brings you to remote corners of the province. Hear Chris explain how he discovers his medium and how intimately this ties to Take a Hike Foundation
Clare Hodgetts– Vancouver Island’s amazing shorelines and emerging surf culture feature prominently in Clare’s collection. It’s no wonder that she’s teamed up with Vancouver’s own chapter of the Surfrider Foundation for this one night only event.
