Featuring designer and illustrator Leslie David, set designer and art director Adi Goodrich and photographer and director Elizabeth Weinberg, Make Nice will see panels that present a female perspective on the creative industries.
Together, these creative women will speak on creativity in interior design, graphic design and fashion, with a focus towards curators, artists, producers, photographers, artistic directors, writers, stylists, and illustrators of all genders. In curating an event for women working successfully within industries that are often seen as being nonlinear and isolated, the program hopes to kickstart conversations and collaborations that aren’t available within the existing landscape.
Running from June 2 – 4 at Cake Wines Cellar Door and aMBUSH Gallery, Make Nice’s above international guests join homegrown contemporaries, Vivid Ideas director Jess Scully, designer Suzy Tuxen, documentary photographer and journalist Elize Strydom, writer and editor Brodie Lancaster and M&C Saatchi Head of Art, Niccola Phillips for the talks.
Co-Director, Alex Winters, believes that now is the perfect time for a female-lead event like Make Nice, “there’s a growing need for women in the creative industries to promote and encourage each other. By growing relationships with our peers, we will all gain by sharing our industry knowledge and forging friendships and connections”
