This is Vancity presents: Behance Portfolio Review Vancouver – May 14, 2013
This is Vancity, your local online source for creative happenings, has answered the open call by online creative professional network, Behance Inc., for their third Behance Portfolio Reviews. Hosted on May 14th at Lost+Found Café (33 W.Hastings St.), this creative talk and networking social is an opportunity for students, art/design studios, and industry professionals to come together and witness the mechanics behind five local projects that explore or create “community” in Vancouver.
Each speaker represents a different facet of Vancouver’s arts and culture scene; all of whom are young, driven and passionate about the city they call home. Rommy Ghaly’s visual diary, Vancouverish.com, is “a never-ending stream of documentary film photography covering the alternative side of Vancouver, primarily the grassroots arts and music scene and the individuals that comprise it.” Andrew Zo’s “Awkward is Awesome” poster campaign was inspired by the familiar Vancouver Foundation’s report on resolving loneliness in the city. Natalie Hawryshkewich is the lead designer of Tether, the “unmagazine” that challenges traditional notions of hyperlocal print media. Ben Scott created a new social engagement platform for change makers called “GoodBomb” that has been officially endorsed by the Deputy City Manager of Vancouver. Finally, Sandon Monnastes is the founder of Cup Cuff, a stylish, eco-friendly reusable solution for on-the-go coffee and tea drinkers.
Join us at Lost+Found Cafe for an inspirational night where we expose the personality behind both creation and creator on May 14th, 7 to 9:30 PM. Tickets are available at http://behancereviewsvan.eventbrite.com for $10 admission, although discounts are available upon request for students and creative studios.
