Hey Dublin!

For our next event we want to take a little look inwards to our lovely creative community and ask how creative kind can be kinder to not only ourselves and each other but to everyone affected by our work.

We've got a brilliant line-up of speakers ready and willing to help you to be kinder as you move through your career and your life! From how to avoid being an asshole to your colleagues, your peers, yourself, your clients & customers, the people you design for and society in general - we've got just the right mix of meaningful insights and witty banter to cover you for all levels of assholery avoidance! :)

Tickets are on sale now for €5 but they are LIMITED so grab yours now!

See you at the bar!
