We Shape Cities through Celebration

Our events are audacious, engaging and thoughtful.

Transformation Projects has been operating as a special events production company with a focus in public engagement since 2010. We design events in order to enhance the good work of Businesses, Municipalities and NGOs who are working to inspire a community mandate that upholds the principles of deep sustainability, inclusion and creativity. In our work, we attempt to fortify the health of the cultural commons by curating diversely attended events that happen in accessible, public spaces.

About me


“HootSuite has a really unique culture and it takes a lot of imagination and logistical magic savvy to produce our events. Transformation Projects were able to get into our heads and built such an intuitive relationship with our corporate retreats that we couldn’t imagine using anyone else.”

Ambrosia Humphries, VP of Talent, Hootsuite Media Inc.

“Putting on a successful event takes a huge amount of creativity, energy and a strong attention to detail. As an ad-hoc committee coming together to put on an annual event, we found that none of us had the time to take on all of those little details. Transformation Projects came in and not only picked up all of those pieces, but added a new energy and lots of creativity to our event. With their help, our annual forum far exceeded everyone’s expectations.”

Heather Johnstone, City of North Vancouver & Edible Garden Project

“Adrian’s work to design, develop and facilitate an engaging tea program at the Garden has opened up opportunities that not only further our mission to connect cultures and communities, but also create meaningful moments for diverse individuals to learn more about the traditions of Chinese tea. It has been a perfect fit for the Garden and an absolute joy for our guests.”

Susan Ma, Education Manager: Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden

“Adrian is my first call for events of any kind. He’s a virtuoso planner, he’s run several very successful events for me and each time it’s been a relief to put the details in his hands. He’s very smart, entirely self-sufficient, very well connected, and irrepressibly positive and energetic. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Michael Bean, Biz Studio & Beatty Street Studios

“Adrian is an extremely resourceful event organizer and problem-solver.  He has a positive energy that is infectious and creates a cooperative vibe among all staff and volunteers involved in our events.”

Robert Benaroya, Managing Artistic Director, Caravan World Rhythms

“The team at Transformation Projects fulfill’s their name: They can take your concept or idea and transform it into an event or series of events that is uniquely engaging and powerful. I’ve worked with them on a number of occasions and their creativity and commitment continue’s to impress and inspire me.”

Kevin Millsip, Co-Director, genius & Co-Founder: Check Your Head, Get Your Vote On & Next Up

“Andrea is a pleasure to work with, detail orientated, a natural project manager with great communication skills. She’s a problem solver with boundless enthusiasm and a great creative eye.”

David Whitelock, Executive Director, Events Wood Buffalo, Fort McMurray, AB

“Andrea is one of the most singularly fantastic and motivated people I have ever met. Her desire to enact positive change and motivate others to do the same is extremely rare and I’m reminded again and again of her unique gifts. Andrea is creative and dynamic in higher-level thinking, but detail oriented, pragmatic and logical when it comes to executing a project. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Andrea, because I believe in her.”

Tom Wynn, Project Manager, Green Building Retrofits

“Andrea is an amazing organizer and manager who I’ve worked with on many occasions, with a constantly surprising range of talents and who I simply cannot recommend too highly.”

John Richardson, CEO, Ethelo Decisions / Founder, Pivot Legal Society

“In my experience, Andrea is a great facilitator, coordinator, and project manager. She also has the unique ability of being able to harness the creative energy of a group and turn it into something amazing, while simultaneously being supportive and understanding.”
