Make Nice was created by women, for women.
Founder and director Ngaio Parr created Make Nice as a way to, well … make nice. To make things easier and better. To provide practical advice for working in the creative industries, promote the importance of a thriving and supportive professional ecology and foster an ongoing dialogue between women.
Our online platform provides the immediate and much-needed answers to those shitty questions (often in GIF form), creates impromptu drinks in cities worldwide, and has started more than one collaboration.
Our site showcases the work and practice of the women we love to elevate and inspire our community: illustrators, writers, photographers, designers, makers, bakers, curators, singers and songwriters, gamers, painters - any and all female-identifying creatives.
And our conferences bring all of these women together for keynotes, panels, town-hall discussions and our patented ‘not-gross networking’. We Make Nice because we think it’s the best way to make change.
We Make Nice in Sydney, Australia, and everywhere online.
Make Nice acknowledges the traditional country of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, and pays respect to Elders past, present and future. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage and beliefs, which are of continuing importance.
