I’m so excited to announce I’ll be speaking at Inspiration Circle by Kendra and Brad Coupland. This is such an honour and I hope to see you there. I’ll be making a very exciting announcement so don’t miss it!
Kendra and Brad Coupland run an inspiration circle once a month in New Westminster – it’s a free event where artists can come together, share ideas and inspire each other. It’s not intended to be a business network, or to self-promote in any way – just simply a forum where artists can leave their egos behind, and go to teach, to learn, to share, and to create together.
“Tomorrow Vancouver’s own Daphne Chan will be speaking live at our Inspiration Circle Meetup at 7PM in New Westminster, at the River Market. Following Daphne we will have a Q&A / Open discussion on the topic of “Personal Vision in Commissioned Work”.
Daphne Chan is a Canadian artist and photographer. She studied at the the National School of Photography in Arles and the International Center of Photography in New York. Her work is concerned with issues of female body image, identity and sexuality. Her work has been featured in group and solo shows across Canada, the US, and Europe. She has been acclaimed for her fine art nude portraiture and articles about her work have been published in different media. Her mission is to empower women to reclaim their confidence and love themselves through radical self-acceptance.
Daphne previously shot weddings in her earlier body of work, before moving into a body of work that better represented her vision (namely fine art & boudoir) Daphne will speaking speaking about staying true to one’s personal vision, and sharing her own personal journey through the creative process. (trust me as someone who has spoken to her extensively on this – you won’t want to miss this even because she is a wildly engaging & inspirational photographer)
As mentioned earlier, Inspiration Circle is a free event for local Vancouver artists, but does require an RSVP so we know how many to expect. You can RSVP for the event below:
Inspiration Circle will be at Suite 209 – 810 Quayside Drive on the second floor of the River Market in New Westminster. We will get started right at 7pm, so please arrive about 10 minutes earlier to give yourself time to get settled! Feel free to bring a notepad – you never know if you’ll hear something that resonates with you that you’ll want to carry forward in your work. I’ll bring a kettle and a selection of teas, but please feel free to bring a snack for sharing if you’d like.”
