It's one month to go until Something Good; an exciting new two-day design festival in Bristol, and this year featuring Anthony Burrill, Morag Myerscough, Snask, Brendan Dawes, People of Print, Joto and much more.
Held over two days (6-7 October 2017), it's the first of its kind in the city and promises to focus on creativity and the magic of the creative process.
On Friday 6 October, the iconic building of St George’s plays host to a day of talks from a carefully curated team of top creatives. The line-up includes Snask, Anthony Burrill, Morag Myerscough, Trapped in Suburbia, Marta Veludo, Brendan Dawes, Wilfrid Wood and Gavin Strange. The day will be hosted by founder and editor-in-chief of Intern Magazine, Alec Dudson.
Throughout the day they’ll share stories and anecdotes of how they got to where they are today, how they tackle challenging creative briefs, where they find inspiration and how they keep themselves stimulated outside of commercial work. There’ll also be extra activities and installations on site, including live screen printing from People of Print, live demos from Joto and a special VR experience.
On Saturday 7 October there's a chance for people to get their hands dirty with a series of workshops hosted by leading creatives, in venues across the city. Workshops include Letterpress with Anthony Burrill, Working with Wood with Miscellaneous Adventures, Tarot-card making with Sophy Hollington, Plasticine portraits with Wilfrid Wood, Portfolio reviews with Handsome Frank, Papercutting with Sam Pierpoint and Out There with Intern Magazine.
Tickets are on sale now via Something Good.
Something Good is being organised and curated by thread – a community interest company (CIC) that organises inspiring talks, workshops and events for the creative community of Bristol and the South West.
