magCulture Live takes place on Thursday 7 November. We’re excited to share the running order and other details for the day.
As ever, the central focus is editorial creativity, and this year the strand running through the day will be the theme ‘Making a Difference’. In addition, each speaker will address one or more of five editorial disciplines: art direction, illustration, journalism, photography and typography.

Doors will open at 9am for attendees, meaning you can grab a hot drink, browse the magCulture pop-up shop and swing by our sponsor stands before the talks kick off at 9.45am sharp. We encourage you to be at the venue by 9.30am to ensure you’re registered in plenty of time and don’t miss the start of the day.
Bring your own bags
In keeping with our ‘Making a Difference’ theme, we’re keen to make magCulture Live as sustainable as possible wherever we can. This means we won’t be giving out tote bags full of goodies as in previous years; instead we’ll have bundles of goodies for everyone, but ask you to bring your own bag with you to carry them.
Please also note that we won’t be handing out single-use bottles of water at lunch so please bring a reusable one with you. There is a water fountain on site and tap water will be available throughout the day from our caterers.
Two sessions will be open to questions from the audience; the independent magazine speakers (11.30) and Jody Quon from New York magazine (14.30pm). Please be ready to join in!
