The Annual Magazine Conference Returns—In Real Life!

Author: Clara Weinreich

After a year on hiatus, (physically at least — magCulture Live 2020 was held over Zoom à la lockdown) magCulture Live is back on Thursday, November 4th, 2021, in London. And for the first time, there are live streaming tickets available if you’re not able to make it to London. 

Created around the mantra, “we love magazines!” the all-day event will champion great magazine work across art direction, editorial design, photography, illustration, and typography. The day will also be a celebration—at last, an opportunity to come together again and celebrate the creativity at the heart of magazine culture!

“From eighties innovator Terry Jones (i-D) and creative director Alex Breuer (The Guardian) to today’s big indie successes (Kinfolk, MacGuffin) and the latest generation of new magazines, we’ll hear what powers the evergreen desire to create, publish, sell, and read printed magazines,” added magCulture founder, Jeremy Leslie. 

First speakers confirmed
Alex Breuer, Creative director, The Guardian
Terry Jones, Founder, i-D magazine (Commissioned film interview and live Q&A)
Kirsten Algera, editor-in-chief, MacGuffin
Dan Crowe, editor-in-chief, Port and new launch Inque
Osman Bari, founder, Chutney Magazine
Olu Michael Odukoya, creative director, Modern Matter
Harriet Fitch Little, editor, Kinfolk and editor-in-chief, Kindling
Georgeous Michael, founder, Louche
David McKendrick, creative director, Paperboy Magazine
Sachini Imbuldeniya, executive creative director, Studio Pi
Rhona Ezuma, editor-in-chief, Thiiird

Plus! There’ll be additional side events as well as the magCulture pop-up shop; a highly concentrated version of the bricks-and-mortar “terrazzo-floored former newsstand”—as The New York Times Magazine described the shop when they visited way back when.
