Come along to our event celebrating projects Made with Kickstarter

Few things fundamentally change the way the creative world works, which makes the rise and rise of crowdfunding site Kickstarter all the more remarkable. Now five years in, it’s one of those brands that’s become a verb and “to Kickstarter” is an increasingly common way of launching a project.

To celebrate its impact on the creative world, It’s Nice That is hosting an evening celebrating three of our favourite projects that have come to fruition via Kickstarter. Young designer Sam Barclay will be talking about his book; an innovative take on being dyslexic, conveying to readers the physical sensation of the condition, while Kelly Angood will reflect on the enormous success of her DIY Pinhole camera kit which more than doubled its £18,000 target. We’ll also be joined by photographer Luke Stephenson, whose book celebrating the iconic 99 ice cream smashed its target earlier this year.

They’ll be talking about how and why they made their projects happen through Kickstarter and there’ll be an audience Q&A as well.

The event takes place at Mother London on Wednesday 15 October, from 7pm to 9:30pm. Tickets are just £5 and you can book them via the Eventbrite page.
