Ladies, Wine & Design was started in New York by famous graphic designer Jessica Walsh, as an initiative to foster female creativity and raise awareness around the challenges of women in the creative industry. These meet-ups have become so popular that are now hosted in over 75 cities, all over the world. Maddalena Scarpellini, the social media expert of the creative agency Inmedia Design, is responsible for coordinating these events in ibiza. She said “As a professional working in Ibiza, I’m excited about bringing these kind of mentorship and networking opportunities and sharing the vivid creative scene of this beautiful island.”
LWD is a monthly salon night which every time brings together a group of women with influential ladies of Ibiza’s creative industry – from art, design, photography and videography to journalism, architecture, performing arts and fashion. During these events participants will wine and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life in general. The events are free to join, and reservation are first-come, first-served.
Maddalena explained that Ladies, Wine & Design is a community and all voices are welcome, so she kindly encourages anyone who would like to be a mentor and lead a discussion, to get in touch. Ibiza boasts so many inspiring woman and it’ll be nice to be able to provide a space where they feel free to share their experiences, get inspired and be able to empower others. I do believe that collaboration fuels creativity, and Ibiza is a beautiful place for sharing and stay inspired.
The first event will take place at the end of May, and so far are planned up to 4 events. You can find more details about the upcoming events on Ladies, Wine & Design, Ibiza website. The events will be both in English and Spanish, depending on how each mentor feels most comfortable, and they will always communicate in which language the chat will be done in ahead of time.
