Our First Conference Was A Huge Success!
We had 5 days of creating, learning, adventuring and networking in a privately booked, beautiful oceanfront lodge on Bowen Island, Canada.
45 participants from 14 countries
A passionate and talented global creative community has been launched and we can't wait to see how we can make a difference in the world together!

"I can honestly say that this was the best trip/conference that I've ever been part of. I've attended conferences by B&H, Adorama, Canon and many more all over the USA. I learned more on this trip than I ever did at any of them. I can't thank you all enough, I'm incredibly grateful to everyone involved. "
Jarrett Juran, USA
“Sometimes you just have to take a chance and get out of your comfort zone.”
“The team of mentors were so down to earth and really cared about mentoring the attendees of the conference. It was awesome to see that behind the surreal social media accounts they were just real people. The amount of passion that filled every workshop during the conference was something that made me feel that as a team we were limitless and could truly change the world in a positive way.”
Alicia Scott, Australia
“I had just started lining up gigs and sponsorships for my video and photography work, and it tends to become a bit of a lonely lifestyle because when you get that serious there’s not a lot of people who understand that vision. So I was at the point where I really needed to network and surround myself with people who are down for what I’m doing…and in that regard it was unbelievable. It was such a surreal experience to spend time with everyone, not just the big names, but everyone from all over the world and understanding that you’re not the only one out there doing it.”
Vince Blais, Canada
“It was very rewarding to see a group of young people that really get it. We see that on some level in the corporations we go to, because it is the young people working in those corporations that are demanding programs like this. Let's get working with the community and working with each other - even internally, and you’ll see that suddenly you have a family instead of just a bunch of individuals in one place."
Sharon Davis, Co-founder, Giving Well, Vancouver, BC
“The conference brought a massive shift in my life and within me. Being surrounded by so many amazing creatives from all around the globe created this bubble of magic that is hard to describe. The fact that a space was created where such a strong sense of community was established with everyone who attended made this event stand out above any I have ever attended. I have always struggled with confidence when it comes to my creative side. But I finally am ready to push through that and focus on the WHY. And it’s all thanks to those five days surrounded by those people.”
Mathilda de Villiers, South Africa
"I can't express with words just how grateful I am to all of you for making this experience a reality, and bringing together such an amazing community of humans to share, learn, and grow from each other. This is truly a life changing experience and definitely a turning point in my life that I will look back on and see it as the catalyst to creating the life I've been dreaming of. This is priceless."
Claudio Leone, Mexico
