The Un-Conference

In our continued efforts to do the crazy-amazing things we dream up, we are very excited to present:

Make Nice: An Un-Conference for Creative Women
Surry Hills, Sydney
22 - 23 September, 2017

Make Nice is an online community and real-life Un-Conference for creative women, and our 2017 event is nothing short of a cracker. We have a full day of inspiring, useful, productive, thoughtful and powerful content (aka, program of our / your dreams).  

As far as professional development goes, this is *quite* the affair. We invite all the best people to collaborate and connect - our attendees are illustrators, writers, editors, photographers, designers, makers, bakers, curators, singers and songwriters, gamers and painters, amongst others, so you'll be in very good company! 

We've got Keynote Talks, Town Hall Sessions and Roundtable Discussions that tackle all the big issues. And we foster a not-gross networking environment, where all kinds of new project, clients, and collaborators have been found.

It's fair to say that our social skills and ability to have fun and be inspired by each other are some of our best qualities. We’re coming good on our promise to help you build a working (and sometimes drinking) relationship with women across a range of industries and fields.

And our speakers? World-class and nice as hell - seriously, we can’t believe our luck with these women.

To pull all this off we’re working with some amazing Partners this year. We’re so excited to have the good folks at Adobe, The Old Clare, Eskimo, Milligram Studio, Alpha Box and Dice, AHD Paper Co. and The Print Bar on board.

Stay Over

If you're from out of town, or just want to make a real weekend of it, we've got you an exclusive 15% deal with our partner, The Old Clare. That's right, boutique hotel charm and the best cocktails in town.  

Just enter the code ‘MakeNice’ on check-out, or when you book via email. The offer is valid from 18 to 28 September, subject to availability. Please and thank you! 


You have questions? Sure thing! Check out our FAQs or shoot us an email - we’ve got you.


We are looking for a team of amazing female volunteers to Make Nice with us in Sydney from 22-23 September, as well as a little prep time prior. We need ladies who are studying or working in production and event organisation and/or have an RSA and/or know how to work in a hospitality environment and/or know how to sew and/or know their way around a power tool and a paint brush (we are nothing if not eclectic).

You'll get a ticket to the event, a strict 'no jerk' working environment and unlimited coffee. Fill out a form before midnight Sunday, 3 September and we'll be in touch!
