Are you aged 16-24? Come and meet like-minded young people and have your voice heard.

Join Rising Arts Agency in June for RE/IMAGINE, a creative meetup and conversation about the spaces young people want and need in Bristol.

Whether you’re interested in dance, spoken word, illustration, DJing, setting up a business, fashion—or something else!—come along. We’d love to meet you.

Hosted in Junction 3 Library, the night will feature:

  • inspirational creatives from the city who you can chat to about your career aspirations or interests
  • networking opportunities (with peers and industry professionals)
  • performances from local artists
  • (more to be announced soon!)

This is a free event but please RSVP via the Eventbrite link above.

There will be food provided. This event is especially aimed at young people aged 16-24, with creative ambitions who want to influence Bristol art and culture, but all are welcome.

There will also be the opportunity to collaborate to shape how Southmead Library could become a creative hub for young people in the future, and to speak to influential people that can make things happen.

See you there!


FUTURESPACE INTERNSHIP – 2D & 3D Design Intern, UWE Frenchay Campus 


Open Bionics is a Bristol-based bionics company developing affordable, assistive devices that

enhance the human body. We’ve started by introducing the Hero Arm, a stylish, 3D printed

multi-grip bionic arm. Other upper limb prostheses on the market exist as hooks, grippers, or

incredibly expensive bionic hands. We’re on a mission to make beautiful bionic limbs more

accessible. Visit our website to find out more:

design tasks at Open Bionics, including creating new concepts for our bionic arm covers,

support in creating design work that is life-changing for amputees & limb-different people, and

well suited to a Graphic Design student/graduate with an interest in product design, or a Product

Design student/graduate with an interest in graphic design. Art & fashion students/grads will

The Graduates 2019!

As spring slowly turns into summer, the changing of the season only means one thing for us at It’s Nice That: Graduates. Just as students begin handing in their final projects and dissertations, and start to pop-up their degree shows across the globe, we’re pleased to announce this year’s edition of The Graduates is now open for applications. That means if you are a graduate or are graduating from an undergraduate creative course (bachelor’s or equivalent) in 2019, we want to hear from you!

Now in its 11th year, The Graduates is an annual programme we run to find a diverse batch of untapped creative talent. Always bowled over by the applications we receive, each year the number of graduates we feature has expanded, with last year marking the first time applications opened on a global scale, allowing us to find even more talent and be as open and inclusive as possible. In 2018, our global class of graduates included illustrators from Louisiana and Sweden, graphic designers from Portsmouth and New Zealand, California and Singapore, photographers from Poland and Brighton, and our class expanded to include fashion design and product design graduates for the very first time, too.

So, from now until 24 June, we’re on the lookout for the next leading photographers, graphic designers, illustrators, animators, filmmakers and every creative discipline in between. Rather than projects bound by commercial briefs, we look for portfolios that are bursting with personality; we want work that develops from an original idea and is representative of the person who has created it.

If that sounds like you, you can submit your application here and further details about exactly what to submit can be found below.

We look forward to hearing from you!


Each of the winning graduates will receive…

– An interview on It’s Nice That about your work.

– A prime slot on the homepage during our dedicated one-day Graduates takeover.

– The chance to become part of the It’s Nice That network and seek helpful advice and guidance from our team.

Applications are now open and will close on Monday 24 June 2018. Over the next few weeks, we’ll also be sharing a number of advice articles for graduates, including everything from industry leaders sharing portfolio tips, how to best approach a job interview, experiences of the daunting first year out of art school and even some advice on how to do your taxes.

Things to know before you enter:

– Work submitted must be the product of an individual portfolio, as opposed to a partnership or collective.

– We prefer evidence of work that isn’t bound by previous commercial or competition briefs. We want to see work that has authorship and that is original to you!

– All portfolios can be submitted as a website link or a downloadable PDF up to 20 MB. We cannot open WeTransfer links, Hightail or Dropbox folders.

– Applicants must have graduated, or be due to graduate, from an undergraduate course (bachelor’s or equivalent) in 2019.

Remember: the deadline for entries is midnight GMT on 24 June.

Conversations About Race: Publication Launch

UWE BA (Hons) Graphic Design presents the publication launch of CONVERSATIONS ABOUT RACE on Thursday 23rd May 2019.

5:30pm – 7:30pm
Foyer Perfomance Space
Colston Hall
Colston St

Typenowhere is the publishing wing of UWE BA (Hons) Graphic Design programme.

Our latest release is the new publication ‘CONVERSATIONS ABOUT RACE’ produced by final year students (William Devlin, Anna Quarrie, Meg Alderson, Megan Webb, Meg Preece, Suzannah Bayliss, Nathan Day and Elliott Herbert – Byrnes) and the programme support assistant (Stacey Olika) for BA (Hons) Graphic Design, University of the West of England, 2019

The publication is a conversation about race, documenting interactions to incite further conversations about race. Living in a diverse world but not a diverse course. Institutional and systematic privilege. Dismantling the top and connecting culture. If we are not part of the solution, we are part of the problem. Highlight the source and not the receiver. Things begin at the top and seep their way into society. This publication is aimed at the question, why are we talking about race? As designers, our mission is to communicate ideas that inspire, inform and captivate the word.

You can receive your copy of the publication at the launch, get the chance to meet the team behind this and network with design professionals.
