This Month on JUNE 29th



For our 16th THRIVE Talk we thought we’d create a truly unique THRIVE Talks experience! We’re excited to announce that director curator of New Media Gallery Sarah Joyce will be our speaker for June.

The New Media Gallery is a contemporary public art gallery devoted to the presentation of international, national and regional new media art and also happens to be one of our very favourite galleries. In the first part of the evening Sarah will share her inspiring THRIVE Talk with us and then will give us a private guided tour of the gallery and their current Bridge exhibit! We will enjoy a talk and a tour all in one night.

The talk will take place in the Anvil Centre on Thursday, June 29th from 6:30pm until 8pm. Then it will be time for a tour around the gallery for personal after hours tour of the Bridge exhibit!

After the talk there will be time to ask questions and mingle until 9pm.

It’s our first time leaving Vancouver for a THRIVE Talk but the Anvil Centre is just a two minute walk from New Westminster skytrain station. This unique experience will be well worth a little extra travel!

Date: Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Time: 7PM-8:30PM 

Location:  Anvil Centre, Media Studio #417 (777 Columbia St, New Westminster, BC)

THRIVE Talks and THRIVE Talks Minis are held on alternating months throughout the year. These speaker series were created as a way for likeminded artists to gather together in an intimate setting and enjoy inspiring talks by both artists and those working in the arts!

THRIVE Talks speakers are successful women—including those who are cis, trans, gender non-binary, gender-fluid and femme-identified—in the arts who share their journeys, successes and advice. With a single speaker for the night we are able to really get to know them and dive deep on certain topics that relate specifically to artists' lives.  

At THRIVE Talks Minis we hear from seven different artists in the community who share their journeys, their work and why they do what they do. Each artist volunteers their time and develops their public speaking in these unique 9 minute presentations! These are the perfect talks for anyone who is interested in learning what the heck it is that artists do and why!

Please note that speakers and attendees at THRIVE Talks are cis and trans women and people who are gender non-binary, gender-fluid and femme-identified. Sorry gentlemen but these talks are not for men.
