Event: magCulture Live Online

Posted by

Unable to hold our annual NY conference this month, we’re excited to announce we’re leaving the lecture theatre to bring the magCulture Live experience to your home.

We’ve often been asked to stream our annual conferences; now you can get a taste of what you’ve been missing, wherever you are based.

The two-hour event will be a virtual celebration of magazines in the 2020 pandemic, with international speakers from different areas of magazine publishing sharing creative responses to the Coronavirus.

The speakers

Gail Bichler
Design director, The New York Times Magazine (New York)
Since lockdown, Gail and her award-winning NYTMagazine team have produced a series of weekly issues examining every aspect of the pandemic. She will share this remarkable work and discuss collaboration while working from home.

Jaap Biemans
Founder, Coverjunkie.com (Amsterdam)
Jaap is art director of the weekly magazine for the Volkskrant newspaper; alongside this he curates the Coverjunkie website, sharing the best magazine covers from across the world. He’ll be talking with Jeremy Leslie about the international visual response to the various stages of the pandemic.

Martha Dillon
Editor, It’s Freezing in LA! (London)
Despite Covid-19 and its effects, climate change remains our biggest challenge. Martha will present the recent fifth issue of IFLA! and discuss what climate change and the pandemic mean together.

Pann Lim
Creative director, Rubbish FAMzine (Singapore)
Alongside his creative agency Kinetic, Pann, and his wife Claire and children Renn and Aira, have published nine issues of Rubbish FAMzine, a unique collaborative project about their lives. He’ll be sharing advice on staying creative in lockdown.
