We here at Gather, are all artists in some way shape or form.
Whether you’re a designer who sees in Pantones, a developer who uses code to paint interactive masterpieces, or a marketing guru who helps craft the digital world around us (just to name a few), we all use our own artistic abilities to leave an impact in our prospective fields.
So, we thought what better way to celebrate the artistry in our everyday lives than to surround ourselves with our fellow creatives and make this next Gather event all about it!
We have a couple amazing presentations lined up for you by Angela Bains of TransformExp and Noa Ben-Mazia from Children Of Art.
Come hang out with us, enjoy a couple free beverages and most importantly, pizza! All treats provided to us by our lovely host, STAT Search Analytics. Donations will be going to Children of Art, an incredible foundation that uses the power of art and creativity to change lives. We are looking forward to seeing your friendly faces at this next gathering!
Angela Bains is co-founder and Strategic Director of TransformExp. As if that weren’t enough, as a part of her 'giving back' philosophy she also teaches Strategy, Branding and Graphic Design part-time at BCIT. She will be speaking about using our talents for social change, weaving in Nelson Mandela’s story and how she helped in the fight for his release.
Noa Ben-Mazia, founder of Children Of Art, will be telling us about how she started this incredible foundation and what it’s all about.
Proceeds will be going to Children of Art. Children of Art is a registered non-profit organization in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. They build art programs for children in need and work to alleviate the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Please note that STAT Search Analytics' space is on the third floor and thus is not wheelchair accessible. We apologize for any guests who may not be able to attend because of this, and we're striving to ensure future events are accessible to all. If you know of any accessible, free, event spaces for us to look at, we'd greatly appreciate it.
Gather is a series of events aimed at bringing together women in tech. The goal of Gather is to build community, to support each other, make meaningful connections, and give back to the larger community - all while having a fun time in a low pressure environment (no thanks to stuffy networking events).
All proceeds from our events go to various nonprofit organizations supporting women in Vancouver.
