Press Release (ePRNews.com) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Jul 27, 2017 - Vancouver, Canada: Canadian artist James Picard will be a guest speaker at the The Power of Story conference, a special event dedicated to sharing stories in order to inspire and motivate others. As an internationally-recognized artist who has exhibited extensively in over 150 art shows throughout North America and Europe, Picard has a story or two to tell about his experiences.
Taking place on October 2nd, 2017, in Vancouver, B.C, The Power of Story conference was created to help “open ourselves to authentic connection and understanding. Stories also help us see past our initial thoughts or judgements. As we become vulnerable and allow others to as well, we make true connections and build understanding. The Power of Story conference is an opportunity to make these connections, to learn something new, to be inspired, encouraged, motivated and even transformed.”
Being a guest speaker at The Power of Story conference couldn’t be more fitting for Picard, who is currently touring his award-winning documentary, “The Dark and The Wounded,” a film that explores facing reality and finding freedom in your truth.
