One of the most rewarding things about the shop is the incredible people that walk through our doors & the amazing community we've developed. With that in mind, we are excited to announce the launch of Create+Connect, a new conversation series taking place in the shop where we invite one of our talented friends to lead a conversation about working in creative fields and the challenges/perks that come with it.
I'm beyond excited that Chelsea Parrett will be leading our first conversation on Tuesday, August 22nd from 5:30-7:30pm!
Launching off of her background as the Snow Peak Marketing Manager and her years in experiential advertising agencies, Chelsea jumped into a freelance career based on one rule: saying yes.
Not afraid to try something new, she found herself building a variety of skill sets while working on projects ranging from photography, styling, content creation, creative direction, brand strategy and interior design.
Breaking the rules when it came to roles and perceived industry limitations allowed Chelsea to cultivate her own creativity and professional network, developing a dynamic style of storytelling.
With a spirit of personal growth and evolution in mind, Chelsea most recently finds herself focusing on the question of what responsible media looks like. Addressing gender stereotypes, body + age diversity, and what it means to be intersectional in the spaces she works within, are the themes rising to the top of her newest work.
Chelsea will be speaking about her experience in the freelance world including a range of topics like taking risks, dealing with anxiety, self-care, and how she stays positive and optimistic.
We hope you will join us for this awesome evening! Wine, beer & snacks will be served at 5:30pm and the conversation will start at 6pm.
Please RSVP (for free!) to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
