Coffee & Connection w/Social Entrepreneur & Author Madeleine Shaw

May 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Learn from creative spirit and social changeleader, Madeleine Shaw, author of The Greater Good, about navigating the art of creating a career that aligns with your passion and purpose, no matter the discipline or industry. Everyone has the creative energy and spark to change the world.

 

Building a successful career in the arts often depends on navigating the business of art-making while simultaneously addressing issues of power dynamics and the need for equitable relationships between artists and those who engage their services, including local government, galleries, producers, presenters, business partners, community service providers, and non-profit social change organizations. 

Feeling isolated? Needing to connect (both online AND offline) but don’t know how?

Co-working, tech-enabled, members from our extended Okanagan Valley-wide community often work in enterprises and businesses working for social or planetary good through collaboration and solidarity economics.

Impact Arts Co-op in partnership with Zebras Unite Kelowna Chapter is hosting a quick community coffee meet n greet (HYBRID style) with our co-op member and author Madeleine Shaw. She’ll share her personal journey of change leadership through both for-profit business and non-profit partnerships chronicled in her new book The Greater Good: Social Entrepreneurship for Everyday People Who Want to Change the World. . Come meet the woman behind the social purpose magic!

Partnering with other professionals, advocates, and social changemakers deepens the impact of your work, increasingly engages richer dialogue, and encourages meaningful change in the communities where we work and help create The Greater Good.
