We are delighted to return for the second Show & Tell creative conference. Show & Tell is a free Christmas Market & Design Fair featuring a ticketed series of talks & workshops featuring some of the most interesting names in creative business in Dublin.

We showcased at Show & Tell last year and it was a huge success for us. We got to meet many creatives / makers & designers and it opened many doors for us and we have formed many friendships & relationships with many of the folks we met that day. We are very much looking forward to returing to this great event and the amazing lcoation of Smock Alley. 

There will be various talks & workshops held throughout the day and a wonderful Christmas Market too.

We'll have lots of our prints and greeting cards with us on the day so please make sure to swing by!Admission to the market is FREE. Sign up the the event on Facebook here


An annual one-day creative conference, workshops & design fair at Smock Alley Theatre. Focusing on connecting Irish start ups, micro and SME's with supports and information to encourage success, as well as showcasing the best in Irish design. This year S&T features a host of experienced and innovative speakers to share their first-hand experience of operating a business within the creative industry in Ireland.

A curated selection of workshops focusing on marketing, social media, finance and business advice hosted by LEO. And a design fair showcasing some of the best contemporary designers, artists and businesses from around the country.

Our TALK series will be curated and hosted in three sessions by Just Six Degrees, HunReal Issues and Slow Series. Listen to presentations and panel discussions focusing on honest discussion of the real experience of the small business owner in Ireland. Learn about the tools, motivation and specific supports available as innovative speakers share their successes and failures as well as the pitfalls of self-employment in creative industries.

Our WORKSHOP element will be provided and curated by LEO to establish practical and useful steps to getting your creative business off the ground.

Our DESIGN Fair celebrates contemporary design in Ireland and showcases small creative studios which are still finding their feet in the retail & commercial sector. Our stall holders range from illustrators to textile artists, paper designers to goldsmiths and everything in between. This is completely open to the public, and with Christmas right around the corner will be the perfect opportunity to buy unique presents for those around you while supporting up and coming designers.

We believe passionately in the power of the people behind new design, brands and business in Ireland. Join us as we celebrate the Dublin's creative pool of artists, designers and small business owners.
