Join us at our summer residence Duke Studios for a virtual tour of creative communities in Yorkshire and around the globe. We’ll be hearing insights and taking a tour of our local creative scenes looking at the highlights and emerging trends as well as sharing top tips with our fellow Glug chapters from around the world.  

As it’s our summer party there will be booze, bbq, and music late into the night - there may also be sand TBC! Great weather also TBC.

We're bringing you a bumper day of events featuring Ted talks conference 12-5pm and our usual lightning talks in the evening 7-11pm.  

The day conference will provide insights on working and experiencing different creative cultures and the journey on how our speakers built international business practices.
