October 12th Give ‘n’ Take
On October 12th, the Pillar Heights team along with the help of Irina from Vancouver Sustainable Fashion Designers co-hosted our first Give ‘n’ Take – Resource Share event. The intent of the event is to gather a group of people in a related field of work and have them feed off of each others knowledge and experiences. We break our discussions into two topics, “Gives” and “Takes”.
Every one comes prepare to share business hacks, life lessons, and insider tips on that particular related field. We also encourage everyone to come with three takes, those often can be in the form of an “ask” of the group, questions and needs.
After some quick introductions the group wrote down and posted their three “Gives” and their three takes on our event board. Irina and Andrew from our team went through the “Takes” with the audience first, addressing the questions and Take’s that really stood out, kept coming up and were most relevant for the present audience. For instance the 2 things that stood out most for the Vancouver Sustainable Fashion Designers group was finding more sustainable fabrics and finding smaller production options. As a group and individually we tackled these questions, each individual chiming in where they could with their own experience and suggestions. On the “Give” side of our wall post there were ton’s of recourses and tips being shared like which website hosting people were using, which manufacturers were doing small production, which graphic design sites to use and people offering to co-host and work on other events together.
Our purpose with the Give ‘n’ Take is to break down barriers through our community sharing, to achieve our creative dreams and to grow together.
Our next event is scheduled for late November, want to join our next one?
