September Community Minutes

September Creative Mornings with Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia and WikiTribune!

1/ Hannah

Hannah’s just helped launch a new discussion series called Unthink Tank with Yolt, a money platform built to give everyone the power to be smart with their money. Their next free event on 20 October is with David Birch on blockchain, bitcoin and the future of currency. Check out the Eventbrite page for more details.


2/ Uslan

Uslan’s art is being exhibited as part of a group show in Shoreditch’s Black + White Building on Rivington Street, alongside work by other emerging Creative Debuts artists for their October First Thursday. Show up and show some love!


3/ Carl

Carl’s the founder of Wurqs, a platform to build your network and unlock opportunities. He’s started a new digital content series called Diversify Me, to understand the network of privilege and work to extend that to people who don’t normally have the same access to resources. So if you have needs or you have access, get in touch with him and make some magic.

5/ Mattieu

Mattieu’s a software engineer but 6 months ago he taught himself type design, in an effort to better understand how to lay out information. Now he’s released a new typeface for the world to use! Marvin Visions is free for personal use and from £10 for a pro licence. Go try it out!

Andrea’s the UX Manager of the University of Arts, London, and he came to tell us that Not Just A Shop has now opened in their High Holborn site. It’s a pioneering retail space selling design products and artwork by UAL students and alumni, while also offering space for students to get support with starting and developing their businesses.
