You're a creative person.

You take photographs, write, make jewellery, knit amazing hats, cook or bake, you may even paint or make beautiful calligraphy art. But you wonder, how do I take this creativity, that I care passionately for, and make it into a sustainable and profitable business or you may even wonder how can I take these wonderful products of my creative expression and connect them to an audience online that will appreciate them? Some of you may also be puzzled over how you can then turn this audience into a customer?



Buzzing Creatives is dedicated to help you, fellow creative, take that next step online, to reach your potential audience and to turn that audience into customers.


We will help you beat that creative slump [if there is one] so you can create a social media, branding and business strategy that works for you, helping you exterminate the fear of the online dragon and slay it once and for all!  Whether you're a small business looking to grow or just a creative looking into--and frankly, slightly overwhelmed by--starting an online business, Buzzing Creatives will provide the tools, resources and tips that we have gathered from our nearly 10 years of online entrepreneurship, which includes running a fashion and lifestyle blog, a handmade finds instagram account, and an Etsy shop. Even if you are someone who is yet to tap into their creativity, we are here to help foster, support and grow your creativity into something meaningful.

 

We are not solely focused on creative businesses, but creatives themselves, and believe in providing creatives, like you, with a community of other like-minded or divergent creatives to inspire each other here on Buzzing Creatives itself. 

 

We live in an online age and this has changed the game for many businesses and entrepreneurs, as it means that the amount of platforms available to market and promote yourself have increased. We believe this has especially worked in the favour of creatives like you, because it means that you can sell and market your products from the comfort of your own home. What you need then is the 'HOW TO.' Meaning, how to do it in the most effective manner so that your passion can be turned into a profitable online business. The online platform has opened many doors and created many new exciting opportunities for creative entrepreneurs, but this can also mean that it can be overwhelming at times.

 

We are here to help you strategize and create action plans so you can get buzzing and take that next step online!

Tript came out of the womb kicking, screaming and a dreamer. She was a little girl that let her imagination run wild with a paintbrush in her hand and spending most of her time lost in books. As much as her head was in the clouds she also found ways to help and encourage people in a real and meaningful way. She would spend her summer creating activities and lesson plans for her younger sisters, which in her adult life has manifested in the realization that she is passionate about teaching.

She believes life is a journey and inspiration, for Tript, can hit you at any given time. From travelling to Europe by herself for the first time at the age of 20 to shutting down an intersection in the heart of the city during peak traffic hours during a protest, or from going on an intense two day hike in the Himalayas to being in a U2 music video, Tript has valued adventure and creativity in informing her life journey nourishing her soul. Everyday she strives for a balance by combining her love for creativity, teaching, travelling and helping those in need. Recently, she volunteered in India teaching children from the slums in a makeshift school and developed and taught a basic computer course geared towards South Asian women, who otherwise felt intimidated to learn computers, at the local community college. 

For Tript, innovation is the result of community supporting creatives and that is why she places emphasis on building a sense of community where teachers are students and vice versa, so everyone can learn from each other and grow as creatives.

This is also why education has been central in her life. She has two undergraduate degrees (BA in Psychology with a Minor in International Relations from the University of British Columbia & BA in Communications from Simon Fraser University) and a Master's degree (MA in Gender and Development from the Institute of Development Studies, England).

Her work experience and studies have equipped her with many tangible skills such as researching, teaching, writing, marketing and social media strategies that she is excited to share with you! 

She went to fashion school (Blanche Macdonald), she went to art school (Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design) and she even went to regular school (University of British Columbia and The University of Oxford). In terms of learning who she is as a creative, she has gone far (from Canada to England) and wide (academia to studio time). Prabh has a Bachelors of Arts in Classical Archaeology, with a minor in Visual Arts and focus in Art History, and a Master's in Classical Archaeology.

Her education and work experience have given her expert understanding of advertising, branding, marketing, public-relations, editing, writing and research. 

Prabh firmly believes that you are a student your whole life, inside and outside of the classroom, and this has been the underlying principal in her desire to continuously stretch her brain, learn and experience so she has more tools to choose from in her creativity toolbox. She believes that absolutely anything can inspire so as long as you are open and aware of what is going on around you!

This has led her to dig on an uninhabited island in the Cyclades, to sketch in the British Museum, to make an 11-minute short film, to be a stylist's assistant, to walk the runway herself, intern at a magazine, spend endless hours researching in the Sackler library, and skate the Rideau canal in -45 degrees.

All of these experiences and others, that remain un-recounted, as well as conversations with other creative and academic minded people have provided Prabh with many a-ha! moments, moments that are very precious for all creatives. Moments that Prabh asserts are key in process, problem-solving and progression, also known as Prabh's three P's of creativity!
