Ladies, Wine & Design

Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design Mannheim

A conversation series started by Jessica Walsh,
hosted by Carolin Wanitzek

A salon night held regularly that is usually limited to six creative ladies, but formats lately have varied to include more. We’ll wine, dine, and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you’re a female student or creative and would like to join, please do email me.

Also, please let me know if you’d like to host us in your space, teach a workshop or be a guest speaker. Tickets are limited, first come first serve. It’s free to join.

Let’s share our experiences and support each other!

Nov 30, 7pm, 2017 Inspiration & Process

Where do ideas come from? How do you start a process in order to come up with a good idea? What are the best methods or tricks for working creatively? Bring a project you’re working on, and we’ll discuss the concept and thinking behind it.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York. She has worked intensively on why there are so few female creative directors and believes that we can change this through mutual promotion, networking and support. It is a fact that women are underrepresented in the field of design. So, as female creative minds, we should exchange our experiences and increase the perception of our work. You can read more about it in the following articles:

Statistics show that only a small percentage of women hold leading positions in the creative industries. And yet, other creative ladies often inspire us the most. Here are a few women I admire, worked with, or met! Write me an e-mail if you want to nominate someone for the list, especially if they come from Germany.
