Episode one: A Cause for Conversation
To kickstart the first in a series of initiatives designed to address gender disparity in the creative industry, we invited Katie Kidd and Avril Delaney to chat about their self-initiated side project and their day jobs in the advertising industry.
How did they tackle Vote for Women on top of their day job? Who do they look up to? How can women be more supportive in the workforce? Listen to find out.
Vote for Women
Avril Delaney and Katie Kidd are a copywriter and art director duo from Boys and Girls who initiated Vote for Women, a foldout zine and poster that educated and informed in the lead up to the Referendum to Repeal the Eight Amendment.
Avril and Katie have a wealth of experience working on large international campaigns, with Katie being awarded the 2018 Greenhorn for most promising creative by The Institute of Creative Advertising & Design (ICAD) and Avril being shortlisted for a Cannes Lion for her work with Three Ireland.
Sing Hey Love is a 2016 track by the wonderful Æ MAK. Led by Aoife McCann with support from Daniel McIntyre, Dylan Povey and Peter Kelly – Æ MAK’s otherworldly soundscape fuses punk-esque energy with tribal rhythms, soaring synths and lush vocal harmonies.
Having recently being awarded as the first band to participate in Festival Republic’s ReBalance initiative, Æ MAK are passionate about gender equality in all disciplines with a firm focus on the music industry.
Huckletree is a workspace accelerator bringing together a diverse, disruptive community of startups, scaleups, innovation teams and global brands – all powered by the belief that collaboration is key to building a successful business.
The Other Podcast is the first in a series of initiatives aimed at empowering women in the creative industries.
Through the manifestation of talks, events, workshops and a podcast we intend to equip women with the skills needed to advance in their careers. The first podcast will be recorded live to commemorate one month since the Irish public voted to repeal the Eight Amendment.
This is not another talk series; this is an opportunity for us to position ourselves as equals in this industry.
