We’ve had a jam-packed year of It’s Nice That events, and we’ve got one more treat in store. Building on last year’s sellout success, we’ve been busy preparing for this year’s In Progress which will take place once again at the Barbican this December.
In Progress is a specialist one-day creative conference celebrating groundbreaking ideas and projects from 2012, and exploring how they will shape 2013 and beyond.
We’re bringing together experts, cultural commentators, critics, and designers to share their ideas, and take part in thought-provoking conversations about the projects and themes that have defined the past 12 months – they’ll also be exploring future trends, insights and potential highlights for 2013, opening up discourse about the direction of practice, process and innovation for the coming year.
Reflecting It’s Nice That’s commitment to creative multiplicity, the programme will feature over a dozen inspirational speakers from across the creative spectrum. Join writer, journalist and broadcaster Rupert Goodwins to explore developments in technology and innovations in 3D printing, one of the LDF highlights, Keiichi Matsuda; a designer working with emerging technologies and current resident at Microsoft’s new East London experimental tech lab, and the The Guardian’s architecture and design critic Oliver Wainwright to assess the legacy of the Olympics, and a whole host more, to be announced over the coming weeks.
In Progress will take place on December 7 at the Barbican Centre, London. A limited number of Earlybird tickets are available now, and the full programme will be announced soon.
