DRINKS & DISCUSSION WITH WOMEN WHO DARE @WEWORK L'AVENUE 03.2018
INSPIRE+DO GOOD was a tribute to the female activists behind International Women's Day. In order to recognize the achievements of those women, we decided to inspire new activism and show that it comes in all forms, with:
- Marika Anthony-Shaw: founder of Plus1, an organization that she founded while a member of Arcade Fire. They work with bands like The National and Macklemore to do good.
- Beatrice Deer: singer for the Beatrice Deer band, and an Inuit woman who has survived and overcome almost every statistic applied to indigenous communities here in Canada: suicide, addiction, depression. She lives in and links both the Inuit community and the non-indigenous community.
- Jane Rabinowicz: executive director at USC Canada and founder and executive director of the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security. She works with farmers around the world to ensure that the seeds they plant remain diverse, before we all end up eating nothing but wheat and potatoes.
