On Tuesday, November 19, 2019, five of the country’s most brilliant and innovative minds came together in support of one of Canada’s most creative charities, UforChange, for our second annual “The Talk” – a live panel discussion with producer and director Barry Avrich, award-winning writer and editor Sabrina Maddeaux, celebrity fashion designer Christopher Paunil, and CBC broadcaster and writer Amanda Parris, moderated by philanthropist and Mantella Corporation’s Chief Marketing Officer Sylvia Mantella, and hosted by Nicole Servinis of Breakfast Television.

The Talk’s panel openly and candidly shared inspiring personal stories that gave attendees a glimpse into the ups and downs of entrepreneurship in their respective industries.

We thank attendees, volunteers and donors for your help in boosting the next generation of young creatives by supporting UforChange’s innovative arts programs.
