It’s Nice That is gearing up for a bumper year and we will continue to be bringing you the best work, projects and ideas from across the creative world to inspire and entertain you.
Each day we will be bringing you stories, news and features that will provide a positive and affirmative angle on just what is being produced. Keep your eyes peeled for special projects on key dates such as International Women’s Day and World Mental Health Day, and some other special projects we are planning around some key global events. Our Ones To Watch will be announced in February and we will be launching The Graduates 2018 later in the year as we search for the next class of brilliant and talented creatives emerging from university.
Printed Pages will return with a new issue in the Spring. Packed with the best work It’s Nice That has published over the past six months, features that take an in-depth look at the leading lights in the creative industry, and comment and work that will provide a definitive account of the creative world. Of course, there will be a host of goodies with each issue – we are planning some collaborations for prints and the like that we hope you will love as much as we do.
Nicer Tuesdays will be back and better than ever this year. We will be at our Oval Space venue on the final Tuesday of every month to introduce four speakers to deliver punchy, insightful talks about their work and creative processes. This year we welcome our new event partners Dropbox Paper and attendees can expect to receive some great, limited edition swag for attending each event as a result of some amazing commissions and collaborations we have lined up. We will be announcing the details of January’s event this week.
As Nicer Tuesdays has continued to grow in size and success we have taken a decision to place our annual symposium Here on hiatus in 2018. After six cracking years, where we have welcomed over 5000 people to the event in total, we will be taking a ‘fallow year’, much like Glastonbury does. Fear not, as there will be a year-long programme of events, parties and more to which we can’t wait to welcome you.
We will be launching a number of partnerships with brands that allow us to explore creativity in a host of different ways. We’re excited to share what we have been working on for the past few months and in the coming weeks we will unveil some new projects. If you are looking to work with It’s Nice That in a commercial capacity we are always keen to hear from potential partners who share our commitment and enthusiasm to creativity. You can learn more here and please contact Jessica Ings to start a conversation.
As ever, we can’t do what we do without you guys getting in touch with us, sharing your work and telling us about the great ideas that you have had or seen. Please send us work here, or contact us on our social media channels, or come and say hello at one of our events. We are always keen to meet someone new, learn about a brilliant project and share it with our readers. If you are a writer or creative and have an idea for a project or story that you think would be of interest to It’s Nice That, get in touch with the editorial and creative team here and share your pitch.
Wishing each of you a brilliant and happy 2018,
It’s Nice That.
