Lecture in Progress presents Pep Talk, a live Q&A and ‘pep talk’ from a range of creatives with plenty of advice and experience to share.
Pep Talk is back, and primed to help you get your 2021 off to a great start! So if you’re looking for some inspiring words and practical pointers, be sure to tune in on 20th January at 1pm, as Josie Tucker, designer and co-founder of environmental group, Adapt, joins us on Instagram Live. Hosted once again by the brilliant Steph Fung, Josie will be talking about creativity and climate change, designing for environmental activism and being conscious in your career.
About the theme
The relationship between creativity and climate change has necessarily become an urgent and essential one. While long-lasting impact is dependent on everyone from governments and businesses to individuals to step up and accept responsibility, we continue to see a wave of creatives doing their best to not only promote better awareness and education, but also engage people in talking about the crisis – Josie and the work of design studio, Adapt included.
Josie’s work with Adapt has seen her produce everything from campaigns encouraging people not to be a ‘Fossil Fool’ to conversation guides to help navigate awkward party climate chat. So if you’re wondering how you can turn your own creative strengths to help the collective cause, or what you can do to be more climate conscious in your own career, be sure to register and join us on 20th January as Josie shares her hard-won insights.
Meet the guest, Josie Tucker
After studying Illustration and Visual Media at LCC, creative and climate activist Josie graduated from the Royal College of Art’s Visual Communication MA in 2017. Since graduating, Josie worked in a variety of different roles, both in-house and freelance whilst also being the Head of Visual Identity for Brainchild Festival.
In 2017, Josie co-founded ‘climate club’ and creative organisation, Adapt, with designer Richard Ashton. Today, the duo look to use design and humour to communicate climate issues in a new way, with the aim of sharing knowledge, encouraging action and building a community of motivated activists.
Meet the host, Steph Fung
Having graduated from LCC’s BA in graphic and media design in 2019, Steph has since built an impressive online presence, working with the likes of The Face magazine, Studio Moross and The Mill, before landing a role as a motion designer at Selfridges.
