women in photography
I run these conferences four times per year in partnership with Plymouth College of Arts, and although each one is different they all follow a similar format, providing somewhere to feel encouraged, ask questions, share concerns and be truly supported in a safe environment full of like-minded creatives.
WOMEN WHO SUPPORT WOMEN
Recognising underrepresentation in the local community, Amber organised the first event in August 2016 in Plymouth, booking speakers who could tell important stories, showcase their talents, who travelled and inspired with their work. Amber has since held 3 successful events with 100 attendees so far and a growing fanbase.
Now becoming recognised as the platform to showcase female creative talent in Devon & Cornwall, passionate like-minded women come together to support each other to celebrate each other’s successes, learn from each other’s challenges and to empower each other to focus on solutions.

I am passionate about learning and inspiring people and want people to achieve the very best they can. I also want people to feel supported and connect with each other. I know how difficult working on your own can be. I want women to connect and support each other in a friendly environment and share their experiences.
INSPIRES & ENCOURAGES
