Events for 2017 
NO JANUARY, 7 Feb, 7 Mar, 4 Apr, 2 May, 6 June, 4 July (NOT USA/CA), 1 Aug, 5 Sept, 3 Oct, 7 Nov, 5 Dec

What is #TDKtuesdays? We’ve decided here at The Design Kids HQ that there is waaaay too much emailing and not enough socialising. So – roll on Tuesdays (Luckily its begins with a T!) where we will sit down, have a beer and invite anyone to join in. Some of the highlights from last year: multiple people got jobs, magazine swaps, team camping holiday, internships, collaborations, best friends were made, and group shows organised. And a lot of beer drunk! Its a great place for design students and grads to meet other design students and grad, talk shit, swap notes, get involved and just generally build a bigger design community where you live. Maybe they’ll be industry folk there too, who knows. If you are shy, and “networking” (dirty word) is hard, this is a easy place to start. Grab a friend and come say hi!

**Applications are now open for a paid City Host in Austin**

Are you friendly, approachable, keen, and want to meet all the best designers in your city? Want some solid stuff on your resume instead of bluffing it?! Running TDK leads to a bunch of other opportunities for you to say yes to as well, so if this excites you, get in touch!

Very simple, your responsibilities would be:
– Organising a once a month design meet-up #TDKtuesdays (can just be as simple as beers at a certain time and place) unpaid but highly rewarding for someone wanting to meet everyone in the industry
– 1hr paid a fortnight to enter local events onto the TDK website, and write an 2 minute overview of whats on that fortnight. Easy peasy!

If you’re interested, simply pop your details HERE!

From some of our fav previous hosts:

“It's really rewarding and humbling to be a contributor to the creative culture of your city. Plus it's just good fun!” Dave Lydiard, Gold Coast Australia

“Being host not only means you get to meet other cool young designers, but you also get a chance to meet people in the industry out there doing it.” Kate Darby, Christchurch NZ

"I love TDK because it creates a supportive design community for those who are new to the design world." Dora Litterell, Portland USA

"I love TDK because you have so many opportunities to meet creatives and other people interested in similar things. I love TDKTuesdays because everyone you meet and chat to is genuinely stoked to be a part of the design community and so far I've met some really interesting and talented people!" Zoë Rose, Hobart

"The way TDK offers a way for students and grads to interact with professionals in the design community and the fellow students from the other design schools in their city in order to connect and share information between each other." Beau Penton, Sydney

"Being a TDK host is not only a wicked opportunity to make cool shit happen in your community, but a way to connect an army of awesome creatives and get connected yourself!” Craig Scott, Dunedin NZ
