The nights are drawing in, but the design and digital community are still as lively as ever, arranging meet ups and talks around Leeds and Yorkshire! We attended some fantastic events last month, including Design Manchester and OFFSET in Sheffield.
Leeds International Film Festival at various locations
Thursday 3rd - Monday 17th November
Start the month with some epic inspiration in the form of an eclectic mix of incredible films! Hosted by venues and independent cinemas all around Leeds, we are truly lucky to have this on our doorstep, and we should make the most of the annual festival. Our recommendation would be a viewing of Stefan Sagmeister’s The Happy Film, at Hyde Park Picture House.
The Wright Night at the Bowery
Friday 4th November
A great event for any budding writers, established copywriters or old hands! The Bowery is a lovely location in Headingley which hosts a full range of creative workshops and courses. This one invites you to bring your own wine, and explore your writing capabilities, improve your skills and socialise - there is even a prize for best prose!
Leeds Print Fair at The Corn Exchange
Saturday 5th - Sunday 6th November
Leeds Print Fair grows and grows each year - showcasing the wealth of printmaking talent across Leeds. The Corn Exchange offers a great space for you to take in the stalls - the artists are available to talk through their work and their creative techniques, and of course, all work is available to buy!
Multiplicity Leeds at Lambert’s Yard
Thursday 10th November
A brand new event to the Leeds scene, Multiplicity has only been held once before, in Glasgow. It’s an evening of ‘words and works’ - with a great line up. Passport, Bibliotheque and Design Studio are each taking part, in what is promised to be a ‘one night only’ event. See you there!
Drupal Yorkshire at Future Labs
Thursday 17th November
This month, the meet up follows the usual format of speaker followed by a clinic session for helping other developers. It’s the turn of Eli Ward from NWDUG, whose talk is titled ‘Get Your Bits In D8’!
WordPress Leeds at Future Labs
Tuesday 22nd November
The focus of this month’s WordPress Leeds session is WooCommerce. There will be two talks; one for developers, and one for store owners. Just make sure you book a space - it’s a free but ticketed event.
Glug Leeds: The Careers Clinic at Munro House
Thursday 24th November
Glug’s rounding up the year with another fantastic event, this time centred around growing your career in the design sector. (You could attend, or you could just speak to Craft about the next step in your career!)
As usual, we’ll be heading along to lots of these events, so make sure you say hello when you see us. If you’re not able to make any of the events but want to get in touch about creative, digital or marketing recruitment for your team, just drop us an email.Email
