RAW Beauty Talks + The Collective Present #EmbraceVancouver with Taryn Brumfitt
What happens when, one Sunday night, a brave Australian woman posts this controversial image on facebook? In the case of Taryn Brumfitt, it gets 3.6 Million hits overnight, launching a global conversation called The Body Image Movement, about how women truly feel and speak about their bodies.
A viral Kickstarter campaign, $330k+ toward a documentary film & 100 Million hits later, Taryn’s “Body Image Movement” is a testament to what the combined power of social media, crowdfunding, and courage can accomplish. She’s appeared on Good Morning America, graced the cover of Health & Fitness and raised over $330,000 on Kickstarter… backed by Rosie O’Donnell, Ashton Kutcher, Amanda de Cadenet and 10,000+ more inspired people.

We were proud to host Taryn at the Waterfront Theatre on September 30th where she spoke to a sold-out crowd and left with a standing ovation. Here are some of our favourite shots from the night!
