Tickets now available for Nicer Tuesdays December!
Somehow, it’s December?! And what a year of Nicer Tuesdays it’s been so far. But before we start reflecting on what has happened over the previous 11 events, we’ve got one more, very very exciting Nicer Tuesdays for you which is sure to end your creative year on a high. Taking to the stage to round off 2019 will be Mona Chalabi, Mother’s Hermeti Balarin, Anna Ridler and Martin Parr. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this one.
Check out some more information on December’s speakers below after you’ve grabbed your ticket and make sure you make a note: December’s event will be happening during the third week of the month on 17 December, instead of the usual last Tuesday. Doors open at 6:30 PM as always, and the evening kicks off at 7:15 PM.
Mona Chalabi is a British data journalist, currently working as The Guardian US’ data editor. Mona’s work sees her turning complex data and statistics into readable illustrations, often communicating issues related to inequality, mental health, politics and society. At Nicer Tuesdays, she will be giving us a brief run-through of how she found herself in this unique career; how she turns a fact or a question into an illustration; as well as opening up about difficult situations she’s found herself in with clients, and how you can avoid the same thing happening.
Originally from Brazil, Hermeti Balarin is the executive creative director at Mother London, the juggernaut independent creative agency with offices across the globe. Last month, the agency released its work with Ikea, a Christmas ad “for the realists” which sees ornaments taunting their owners about their falling-apart furniture and messy ways – all in the form of a rap diss voiced by grime MC D Double E. At Nicer Tuesdays, Hermeti will be taking us behind the scenes of the making of this ad, giving insight into how he and his team created something different for the festive season which “cut[s] through all sentimental, heart-warming Christmas noise.”
Many will recognise the name Ustwo as the studio which creates digital products, services and immersive experiences, and Ustwo Games is just one arm of this London-based digital powerhouse. Functioning as an independent games studio, its work aims to challenge the medium as seen in hit releases including Monument Valley and Land’s End. At Nicer Tuesdays, the studio’s producer Adrienne Law will take to the stage to tell us about its newest release Assemble with Care, a story of taking things apart and putting ourselves back together as seen through the eyes of Maria, a globe-trotting antique restorer.
Timings for the evening: doors open at 6.30pm and the talks will begin at 7.15pm. Oval Space will be serving delicious food throughout the evening with the venue open until 10pm and we'll have drinks kindly provided by Camden Town Brewery.
