Treana Peake speaks on what it’s like to grow up receiving charity, finding inspiration, and giving back.
February 2, 2013 was our second month of unified themes at CreativeMornings with over 5,000 attendees on six continents gathering to hear speakers address the topic of “Money”. CreativeMornings/Vancouver was proud to host Canadian fashion designer and philanthropist Treana Peake.
Treana spoke about what it’s like to grow up receiving charity, finding inspiration, and giving back.
A few notable comments by Treana: "In a heavily saturated market with a million great causes, how do you get your story heard?“ "Why does fashion have a larger vision or voice than philanthropy?” "The idea that I could combine passion with my talent to create change truly inspired me.“ "When I travel the world I look for the need and the way I’m going to creatively present it to you.” "I don’t think we ever know how much reach we have when we truly put ourselves out there to give.“
Our March 8, 2013 event theme will be “Reuse” and we’re proud to welcome Natacha Beim, presented by Kirk Marketing. Tickets will be available at 11am on Monday, March 4 at creativemorningsvancouver.eventbrite.com.
