Drink & Draw: iPad Adobe Fresco Workshop

Come join us next Thursday, January 23rd as we partner with our very own member Gonzalo Gelso to host a drink filled evening aimed at teaching you some skills in digital art.

It’s not uncommon to see curated illustrations in a digital experience nowadays. Illustrations and drawings can be manipulated to describe modern abstract ideas that sometimes photography cannot portray.

Come have a drink or two (BYOB but no red wine please!) while you enjoy a brief presentation on Digital Art! Bring your iPad and draw along or take notes to learn how you could use Adobe Fresco to make digital art.

Make sure to install Adobe Fresco (there’s a free trial available).

You can RSVP here.

Her Voice by Bare Opera

Come and join us on Friday December 6th as Bare Opera returns to The New Work Project for 'Her Voice'.

Based on a text by Jean Cocteau and composed by Francis Poulenc, La Voix Humaine is a 40-minute operatic melodrama for a solo female voice. The story is both raw and brutally honest as it explores the feelings of a woman as she has her final phone conversation with her lover before he leaves her. Despite being composed in 1959, the text sheds light on the kind of false intimacy and solitude that new technology creates.

Soprano Maria Lacey returns to Bare Opera to perform this rare gem with Artistic Director and acclaimed pianist Laetitia Ruccolo. Set in the Lounge of The New Work Project, the audience will have the opportunity to witness, up-close, the real-time unraveling of a woman’s relationship.

Doors will open at 7.30 pm, and the performance will begin around 8pm.

Investigating a Monster: An Evening with Maureen Callahan

Come and join us on Tuesday December 3rd as we host an evening with Maureen Callahan, award-winning author of the New York Times bestseller American Predator.

When investigative journalist Maureen Callahan first heard about Israel Keyes in 2012, she was captivated by how a killer of this magnitude could go undetected by law enforcement for over a decade. And so began a project that consumed her for the next several years - uncovering the true story behind how the FBI ultimately caught Israel Keyes, and trying to understand what it means for a killer like Keyes to exist.

Our evening will begin with an intimate fireside chat with Maureen in which she'll explain what first prompted her to pursue this incredible story and how she went about uncovering the truth over several long, arduous years. We'll then open the floor to questions, comments, and feedback from the audience. There'll be drinks and nibbles, and Maureen will be available to sign your copies of her book.

Using Design to Power Change

Come join us next Wednesday, November 20th as we partner with Ladies, Wine & Design to host an evening aimed at helping designers use their power to drive change.

As designers, more and more of us are questioning how we can use our expertise and careers to directly impact some of the biggest issues of our time: climate crisis, social impact, and political movements. Our expert panel will explain how they've structured their own design careers to be purpose-driven and will help you to better understand how you can use your power to drive change.

Panelists include:
Katie Klencheski, Founder, SMAKK Studios
Esme González Pillado, Parsons School of Design
Abby Grimshaw, The Century Foundation

There'll be inspiring conversations, and of course, wine.
