Make Nice: An Un-Conference for Creative Women

International Presenters. Homegrown Perspectives. All Female Voices.

Make Nice is an event for creative women, to learn from creative women. Featuring an exclusive lineup of international and homegrown talent, Make Nice gathers pioneering creative women to share knowledge, critically discuss the creative industries, while offering an environment to strengthen support networks and form genuine relationships. 

Make Nice differentiates itself from other creative events by offering an intimate un-conference format limited to 150 females. The three-day event will provide practical advice for working in the creative industries, promote the importance of a thriving and supportive professional ecology, and foster ongoing dialogue for the continued exchange of ideas.

Our speakers are not going to give you a portfolio talk – you will get the untold story, the turning points and the advice that they wish they’d been told sooner. Our presenters are also here to learn, and will be sitting alongside our attendees discussing the issues that make our industry tick.

Additionally, each attendee will be invited to a private online forum along with our speakers and sponsors that will be active year round. This is a space for ongoing dialogue, connecting people to opportunities and staying in touch with the founding group of attendees for Make Nice 2016. This group will grow with subsequent Make Nice events, creating an international alumni on an accessible platform that promotes collaboration and community.
