Dialogue is a social event for London-based designers, it is about exploring what digital creatives can learn from analogue artists.
Each meet-up is about taking that concept and seeing where we can go with it. Whilst the audience will be digital creatives we hope to inspire them with photographers that shoot on film, musicians that play real instruments, DJs that scratch vinyl and artists that sculpt with clay.
Come and join us for beers and pizza. Be inspired, meet-up with fellow creatives and show off a bit - every time we meet we’ll provide the opportunity for a few attendees to showcase their work.
Happy new year Dialoguers!
Fluxxers were left speechless by Giles Duley’s emotive and inspirational storytelling when we saw him speak for the first time. We could not be more excited to announce that on the 12th of February, we will be welcoming Duley, author, photographer and reporter, to discuss his seminal work ‘Legacy of War’. The five year project explores the harrowing effects of conflict on communities, land, and the economy, where in most instances the true extent of the destruction only emerges decades later. However, he is not interested in portraying the suffering or displaying the people he photographs as victims because when he looks at them, he sees their resilience and their strength above all else.
Duley has documented stories in Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon and Columbia as well as produced the documentary ‘Walking Wounded: Return to the Frontline’, where one of the stories he recounts is his own; how he became a triple amputee after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in 2011.
Having been awarded the first IC2A Inspirational Medal, this is truly an incredible opportunity to hear about Giles’ work, the story of his own experiences and those of the people he has met along the way. Join us to ask questions, be inspired and mingle with your fellow creatives. This is an event not to be missed.
Doors will open 6.30pm, talk starts at 7pm
Drinks and nibbles provided
