Nicer Tuesdays

Diaries out - the next Nice Wednesdays is right round the corner

Posted by Maya Davies,

It wouldn’t be right for March to come and go without having another Nice Wednesdays. Don’t worry if you missed out last month, we’ve got another cracking evening planned at Shoreditch Studios and we’d love for you to join us. 

We’ve invited speakers to explore the theme of environments and spaces from a variety of perspectives and give snappy 10 minute talks sharing their stories and insights. We’re really excited about this one! Jono Stevens, founder of Black Cab Sessions, will explore the innovative music platform which hosts interviews and live sessions with the likes of Martha Wainwright and Hot Chip on-the-go in taxis.  

Edward Shuster, co-founder of Invisible Structures will share his story, from meeting his business partner at a protest up a tree to taking on sustainable architectural projects developed with leading designers and engineers from the Eden Project. 

Simon Jordan, head of Jump Studios – specialising in high-concept interiors, installations and architectural design for clients like Red Bull and Google – will explore the ingredients for creating successful work environments, while the V&A’s contemporary curators, Laurie Britton Newell and Ligaya Salazar, will look ahead to the highly-anticipated exhibition Memory Palace opening in June. 

We’re also offering the chance for one attendee to give a three minute talk on the same theme – for more details click here.

Remember tickets were snapped up in hours so don’t delay – we hope to see you there!

    Ladies and gents, it’s time to push your electricity bills to one side and to stop furrowing that frustrated brow – this month’s Nicer Tuesdays is dedicated to the subject of Childhood!

  2. Main-nt-int

    We’ve had a bit of a hunch for a while now that all you lot are pretty into magazines, so we decided to dedicate this month’s Nicer Tuesdays to the people who know most about that very topic and theme the night all around publishing. Port’s David Hellqvist, Dirty Furniture’s Anna Bates and Elizabeth Glickfield, Steve Watson of Stack Magazines, and Tim Noakes of Dazed and Confused all came together to deliver some home truths about the tricky, expensive, but ever-adored world of printed content. Thanks to all who came along, we hope you enjoyed it and see you again soon.

    This month’s Nicer Tuesdays will take on publishing, bringing together four creatives who are each pushing the boundaries in their own unique way.

  4. List-4

    January is historically a dingy, cold and poorly financed month, so we thought we’d have a go at alleviating some of the misery by kicking off 2015 with a series of talks about Humour. And it bloody worked! We had four speakers who all employ humour in their work in wildly diverse ways to see if they could eke a few laughs out of our audience. And eke they did!

    January can be a tough month, all credit card bills, hangovers and grotty weather, which is why Nicer Tuesdays will be back in the first month of 2015 to present four talks on humour!

    The final Nicer Tuesdays of the year took place last night and we were joined by six speakers who have all had particularly interesting and exciting years.

    At our food-themed Nicer Tuesdays, we enjoyed some left of centre culinary insight from Ken Kirton of the wonderful Hato Press, the risograph printers behind books like Studio Cookbook and the recent Cooking with Scorsese, a wonderful little publication that turns the idea of the cookbook on its head. Instead of recipes, we get stills from food-focussed films that encourage readers to look at cooking through a different, more cinematic lens. “There’s no step-by-step ingredients list – it’s all screenshots and subtitles,” said Ken.

    At last month’s food-themed Nicer Tuesdays our first speaker was Caroline Till from multi-disciplinary design studio FranklinTill, which curated the Sensory Suppers at London Design Festival 2011. The idea was born, Caroline said, from a reaction she was hearing among designers, journalists and visitors to LDF that they wanted “no more chairs.” She explained: “There’s a rise for intangible experiences – we wanted to redesign how you interact with food.”

  9. List

    At last month’s Nicer Tuesdays our final speakers were Lee Belcher and David McKendrick – formerly of Wallpaper* and Esquire respectively – whose new venture B.A.M. has just redesigned the magazine for art auction house Christie’s. The pair talked us through how they developed the new look and feel, mainly by immersing themselves in the Christie’s archives.

    For the final Nicer Tuesdays of the year we’re returning with a very special evening of talks celebrating some of the creative highlights of 2014.

  11. List

    Food was on the proverbial table at last night’s Nicer Tuesdays, with four speakers who engaged in all-things-edible talking us though their work in experiential food design; print and publishing; illustration and, perhaps most obscurely, edible insects.

    At last month’s Nicer Tuesdays we were joined by photographer Dan Tobin Smith who talked us through his extraordinary London Design Festival installation of colour-coded clutter called The First Law Of Kipple. “LDF is always about new things – a slightly different kind of chair – so it was interesting to extend it to things that are kind of useless,” Dan explained. He talked us through his inspirations rooted in an interest in the laws of thermodynamics, and the practical considerations such as drawing up a definitive definition of what actually constituted kipple. But at its heart the piece had very universal appeal – “We can all relate to this idea of stuff,” Dan said.

    Nicer Tuesdays is back, and this month we are joined by four creatives who are exploring the world of food in unique and inspiring ways.
