As Ground Zero for the Inspire: The Women’s Portrait Project, it is indeed an honour to also be the president of the newly formed board. My history in Peterborough started 30 years ago, and I never cease to be amazed at the kindness and creativity of our community. The Inspire project has risen above all others in my life – it shows the many faces and hats of the women of our community, celebrating them in their diversity. I am proud to be a board member and am excited to watch this beautiful vision of Heathers’ grow and blossom over the coming years.
Behind the Project
The project began as a very simple idea; over the course of a year, I wanted to create a series of portraits of some of the remarkable women in this community and perhaps celebrate these women with an end of project gala that could be a charity fund-raiser. I am completely floored by the reception to the Inspire Project; the nominees have embraced this little idea with so much enthusiasm and support that my little idea has grown into a wonderful celebration of women who deserve this wonderful recognition. – Heather Doughty, Founder/Creator
Hi! I'm Heather Doughty.
Photography is not just my job; it is my soul; when I pick up my camera I try to capture emotions and tell stories through my lens. As a local a photographer, I have met many incredible people in this community and I have always wanted a way to tell these stories; the Inspire Project allows me to do that. I am both honoured and humbled to be able to photograph each one of the incredible women in this project. My goal is that their photos reach out to you; touch you and the story their portrait tells inspires you.
