Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings Street
Creative Mornings Vancouver September 2017
About the Speaker:
Tara Galuska — part of a series on 'compassion'
When Tara Galuska was five she wanted to be either an artist or a unicorn. The unicorn plan didn’t come to pass but her dream of being an artist did! Tara is a paper artist whose delicate and intricate miniature paper plant artworks explore interior spaces and the plant owners themselves.
Born in Zimbabwe in 1984, Tara spent her early childhood in Zambia before moving to Australia. She now lives in Vancouver, Canada, with her husband and two cats (and many plants). Over the last two years Tara has built a thriving art practice and business and creates artworks for clients from all over the world.
In addition, she works with select brands to create custom work for their projects including Urban Outfitters, The Land of Nod and last year she lent her paper engineering skills to a commercial for Tide. Tara also works with THRIVE Art Studio a place that creates community and support for female artists. She facilitates groups, hosts events and mentors women in achieving their art and business goals.
Tara would still like to be a unicorn.
About Creative Mornings
In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.
Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.
The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local sponsors, generous venues, and longterm partners.
Anyone can attend. Register a profile at creativemornings.com to be alerted to the next Creative Mornings Vancouver event.
