April – September 2009
It’s Nice That hosted a monthly evening of talks in London’s Soho between April and October 2009, curated every month by a selected practitioner. The format was very simple – the creative that we invited to come and host the evening also bought two other speakers with them. The only criteria was that they should choose people who would be interesting and engaging – and they delivered in style. The talks were also published as a series of podcasts.
Artist and designer Riitta Ikonen invited taxidermist Jazmine Miles-Long and letter-writing duo Michael Crowe & Lenka Clayton.
Photographer Jane Stockdale invited filmmaker Cassiano Prado and designer Wes Rozen.
Animator Johnny Kelly invited graphic designer David McFarline and photographer Marco Bohr.
