Creative Dundee

Make/Share – July Line-Up


Join us on Wed 13 July at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, from 7pm – 8.30pm, to hear short talks by people about the processes behind turning their project or product into a reality. Speakers explore how their project or product has evolved, progressed, changed and transformed, how they experiment, what their biggest challenges have been and how they overcame them.

Short talks include the opportunity to show and demo your work. Just bring them along on the night – or share your upcoming events with the group, we’ll make sure to tweet about them. After the talks we have a short opportunity for any questions and discussion.

Watch a short film and see speakers from previous nights here.

We’re also delighted to let you know that The Beer Kitchen is our official sponsor venue for Make/Share and supporting the event with a complementary 2/3 schooner.

You don’t need to sign up, just come along! Add this event to your Google calendar or Facebook.

*We have a break next month, there’s no Make/Share event in August.

Speakers this time include:

Katie Jowett

Katie is in her final year of her masters at the University of Glasgow, studying Theatre Studies. She is a local theatre practitioner and one of her most recent projects has been working on Eddie Small’s play The Four Marys. For the play she has produced an educational production pack and workshop to accompany the play and to be used in local schools. The pack explores the jute history of Dundee, the Verdant Works, the lives of the plays’ four Marys (Baxter, Slessor, Lily Walker and Brooksbank) and the process of making the play. Website: Katie Anne Jonesblog | Twitter: @K_Jowett

Robert Bichan

A graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone college, Robert is a qualified tai chi instructor, web developer and freelance photographer and filmmaker. He will talk about the process of creating a tai chi class and how the personal learning process in this martial art then lead to designing methods which could be used to teach others. Learn more about this beneficial group activity which, by virtue, counteracts the stress of modern living which can consume us. His talk includes demonstration and audience participation.

Barry Nisbet

Barry is a member of Dundee based band Wire and Wool, and also records and produces music at his home studio, Rattled Rig Music (this has included the music used for the Make/Share promo video). The music business is changing fast; for a band to reach the point of releasing an album, as Wire and Wool have just done, diverse skills are required beyond the arranging of the music – although the music is still what is most important.

Lyall Bruce

Lyall is a designer and illustrator, co-founder of Fleet collective. I will be talking about one of his most recent projects developing an identity for a new venue somewhere in Scotland. He will discuss the process of developing identities from a sketch through to completion, and be doing the talk using the design software he runs on his computer.
