Exciting news, frankie friends – Adam J.Kurtz, aka Adam JK, aka the guy on Instagram who’s been making us cackle, cry and high five ourselves since forever – will soon be touring Australia to present a series of creative lectures, and we're pretty dang chuffed to be supporting it. “Whoa, is this guy some kind of rock star?” we hear you ask. Quite simply, yes.
Adam’s hilariously honest, and sometimes-dark memes are bang-on descriptions of what it feels like to be young right now (and he’s got the online following to prove it). His books have been translated into a dozen languages; he’s collaborated with brands including Urban Outfitters, Instagram, and Penguin Random House; and has featured in campaigns for the likes of Reebok and UNIQLO. Can you see why we're excited, now?
Presented by AGDA & The Design Conference, Adam will be stopping by the following cities:
SYDNEY Monday, June 3rd – Turbine Hall, Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris St, Ultimo
HOBART Wednesday, June 5th – The Foundry, Brooke St Pier (top floor), Franklin Wharf
ADELAIDE Thursday, June 6th – The Howling Owl, Corner Vaughan & Cinema Place, Rundle Street
PERTH Monday, June 10th – The Auditorium, City of Perth Library, 573 Hay Street
MELBOURNE Wednesday, June 12th – Clemenger Auditorium, NGV, 180 St Kilda Road
AGDA members, $40
#TDCbne19 attendees, $40
