Wix Playground Presents: It's Nice That
Design for Community
A constant sense of community is so important, therefore we’re bringing our next event online so we can stay connected – no matter what. This event includes four creative powerhouses, who offer an insightful and inspirational perspective on recent events. We will also hear how each has worked towards building online and offline communities. Our speakers include: Eike Konig - founder and creative director of Hort, Danielle Pender - founder and editor of Riposte magazine, Jessica Walsh - Art Director and founder of &Walsh, and Ollie Olanipekun - creative director and founder of Superimpose.
You’ll also get a chance to meet with a speaker for a one-on-one session during a follow up event - Meet the Mentors. During this exclusive session, a limited number of people will have an opportunity to have an open conversation with one of the speakers, connect in a personal setting and gain valuable advice into your work and how to deal with the current situation. The chosen participants will be announced at the end of this online event so sign up for both for your chance to get involved.
