PERSONAL PROJECT

LADIES WINE & DESIGN

NEWCASTLE UK

Ladies, Wine Design was started by Jessica Walsh in NYC. Only a small percent of creative directors are women, and LW&D wants to help change this through mentorship circles, portfolio reviews, talks, and creative meet-ups. In less than two years of launching, we've spread to chapters in over 200 cities all over the world.

In 2017 I brought Ladies, Wine & Design to Newcastle with the purpose of contributing to the local design scene and providing a space for female creatives to come together, share stories, learn and empower each other. Fifteen months down the road we had organised more than twenty free monthly meet-ups and special guest talks in Baltic39, five creative workshops and a big party last May in partnership with The Biscuit Factory. Our community is growing and our team too, today we count with a fantastic copywriter Dan Brough a really talented photographer Marion Botella and a social media expert who'll be joining us really soon, we all volunteer and work hard together under the idea of changing the numbers of female leaders in the design industry and build a community that will help local young creatives, find support, learn, share and build a network.

If you’re a student or creative based in the North East and would like to join or sponsor our events, please do email us or follow our activity on our Instagram and Facebook channels. 

Join the revolution!
