GLUG Brighton

...whilst I was at St Brides on Friday (see below post) it was all happening in Brighton at an event called GLUG!

This is the ninth "Glug Brighton" event organised by Bighton based agencies, Crush and Agency Rush. Aimed at bringing creative types together for a few drinks and a natter it attracts all sorts, including animators, designers, illustrators and many others in the Brighton area.

It's not some dry business card swapping networking event - oooooh no! It's about like minded people hooking up, listening and seeing something really interesting and having a drink or two. With live art, talks by top creatives, interactive fun, pop up shops and more - sounds like a great way to spend a Friday night!

This event was an all female line up of speakers: Chrissie Macdonald (who I did a talk with at Gallery 71a in London last month), Margot Bowman and Modern Love (Sarah Arnett & Kim Hunt)

Live art was provided by Eleni Kalorkoti, Karolin Schnoor, Georgina Luck, Suzi Kemp and
Amy Harris.
There was also "live Screen-printing"!  by Parliament of Feathers, a local screen-printing company who teamed up with Séverin Millet who designed a limited edition print for the event which were given out for free on the night. The prints were produced on our Colorset (100% Recycled) 270gsm.

Anyway, sadly I couldn't be there but it certainly sounds like a great evening was had by all - thanks to Rosie for the pictures. So if you live/work in the Brighton area - sign up with meetup now and watch out for the next  GLUG!

GLUG events were founded in London and now happen at various locations. London events are organised with Studio Output and Made Studio, so look out there as well.
