Nicer Tuesdays

This month's Nicer Tuesdays explores travel inspired creativity!

Posted by It's Nice That,

Our next Nicer Tuesdays supported by Park Communications will explore a range of brilliant creative projects inspired by travel.

Speaking at this month’s event is award-winning reportage-artist Olivier Kugler whose incredible, illustrated journeys include a trek through the jungles of Laos with an elephant doctor and traversing Iran by truck, and Chris Vickers of She Was Only design studio will join us to talk about the challenges of designing Boat Magazine, a travel publication that moves city every issue

Also joining us is filmmaker James Aiken to offer insights to the creative process behind his stunning anthropological studies, most recently following an Icelandic sailor and a Greenlandic hunter to explore how their lives are defined by the environment in which they live, and Chris Coe, founder of Travel Photographer of the Year will talk us through some of the amazing images he has exhibited since setting up the prestigious award 10 years ago.

As ever the beers will be on us, so come on down for an evening of inspirational talks on travel.

    It’s easy to scoff at public art, as a few have – and there’s been many an unfair article written about the costs, the chosen sites and the work itself. But at the heart of these projects that face some undeserved criticisms is that they bring art to everyone: without the white walls of a gallery or the price of an exhibition ticket, it’s there for all to see and to participate in. At last night’s Nicer Tuesdays we heard from four fantastic speakers who work to curate, create or facilitate public art; working for the Serpentine Galleries, Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth, with thousands of people in huge participatory experiences or in the case of one artist, creating mind-blowing trompe l’oeil installations.

    Did you miss our Technology-themed instalment of Nicer Tuesdays at the end of April? Feeling a bit glum at having eschewed the opportunity to hear the founders of Territory Studio, animator Doug Hindson, the chaps behind Technology Will Save Us and the inventor of Sugru divulge fascinating tidbits of wisdom?

    This month’s Nicer Tuesdays is on the subject of public art, bringing together four talks from creatives who approach the subject in their own unique way.

    We went back to nature for last night’s Nicer Tuesdays with four speakers who explore, question and help make sense of the world around us through their creative practices.

    Remember what fantastic fun our childhood-themed Nicer Tuesdays was? There were balloons and everything. If you want to relive that evening, or if you couldn’t make it, then you’re in for a treat – we’ve got films of each of the speakers below for you. They were Science Museum curator Toby Parkin, comics artist Kev F. Sutherland, Play-o-logy co-founder Katie Johnston and Lawrence Zeegen, university professor and author of Penguin by Design. And gosh, they were good. Enjoy!

    While we career into spring, it’s hard to remember what was good about those colder months, like February. That’s because there wasn’t much really, just heinous people talking about heinous detoxes, Christmas-battered bank balances and very cold toes. However, one very good thing was our Publishing-themed Nicer Tuesdays! On the night we had a stellar cast of publishing world hotshots including Tim Noakes, editor-in-chief of Dazed; fashion features editor at PORT David Hellqvist; Anna Bates and Elizabeth Glickfeld, co-founders and editors of crowdfunded biannual design magazine Dirty Furniture and Stack Magazine founder Steve Watson.

    At last night’s Nicer Tuesdays we delved into a whole host of cutting-edge creativity with six speakers whose work touches on technology. First up we heard from David Sheldon Hicks and Peter Eszeny of Territory Studio who specialise in creating futuristic user interfaces for films like Prometheus and Guardians of the Galaxy – “to tell a part of the story the actors couldn’t.” They spoke about the challenges of creating visuals that “are judged in a three-second burst and are often in the background” and explained how creating work for movies set in the near future is particularly difficult because it has to be grounded in reality. The key is to find “a visual language you can tie into quite quickly” so for the new Alex Garland film Ex Machina, blueprints for a bionic skeleton were based on IKEA assembly manuals!

    It has taken a little time but we’re finally ready to unveil the videos from our brilliant humour-themed Nicer Tuesdays held earlier this year. In an attempt to banish any lingering January blues we asked artist Wilfrid Wood, illustrator Matilda Tristram, the inimitable Mr Bingo and our very own INT Works art director Karl Toomey to explore how being funny inspires and affects the way they work.

  11. Nicer-tuesdays-extra-int-3

    As host Liv Siddall helpfully reiterated last night “we’ve all been children at some point,” so the theme of Childhood is a surprisingly appropriate one for a night of talks from people doing brilliant work in the art and design world. Among the ones who spoke at Nicer Tuesdays last night we heard from Toby Parkin, who is lead curator of the hotly anticipated New Interactive Museum at London’s well-loved Science Museum, comics artist Kev F. Sutherland who has drawn characters for the likes of the Beano, Katie Johnston from Playology and Dean of London College of Communication, Lawrence Zeegen.

    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!

  13. 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.
