Ladies, Wine & a bit of Design

A conversation series founded by Jessica Walsh hosted by Jacque Njeri

A monthly salon for creative ladies. We’ll wine, dine, and have casual yet constructive conversations and workshops on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you’re a female student, aspiring creative or a professional and would like to join get in touch. The location for the event will be communicated in due time. Meanwhile, if you'd like to be a mentor, or lead a discussion also get in touch.

April. Date to be updated soon Meet & Greet and Portfolio Reviews

This will be the first salon held in Nairobi. YAY! Come mingle with fellow female creatives and don't forget to bring your portfolio so that we can review together in a small group with the power of wine and expertise of everyone present. Let's do this!

2017 TBD

Dates to be updated soon.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work.
We couldn't agree more, and we also think it would be fun to meet other creative women. We want to create a warm, open and honest environment were woman can talk real with each other. We want to be on each other's side because creative ladies rule!
Here are some articles that inspired me if you want to learn more:

We're working on a list of creative women that we feel are admirable and inspirational. Please email jacquegachahi@gmail.com with samples of their work if you would like to nominate someone.
