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

Are you ready for the details? Remember to breathe now…

Keynotes of our dreams right here - you’ll be hearing from LA’s Ann Friedman, journalist at New York Magazine and co-host of your favourite podcast and ours, Call your Girlfriend; Ukrainian-born, Australia-based artist and tattooist Stanislava Pinchuk (Miso) will be setting aside her work for the likes of Chanel and the NGV to present; illustrator and designer Becky Simpson will be coming all the way from Nashville to talk about process and play; and former head of creative at the Sydney Opera House and design director at Studio Round, Leah Procko will be knocking your socks off.   

You’ll also be hearing from panelists like business superstars Amy Nadaskay of MonogramAnna Ross of Kester Black (nail-painting emoji) and dancer and activist Amrita Hepi (red-dress emoji). And we’ll be keeping it interesting with questions from dynamos Jess Scully and Lex Hirst, because we know they love this stuff as much as we do.

You can read more about these amazing women here. Safe to say, it’s going to be *quite* the affair.

And don’t worry, our social skills and ability to laugh, have fun and be inspired by each other are still 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.
