Soho Create festival, now in its second year, took over London last week with a huge range of talks displaying the vast creativity that lies within one of the city’s most well known districts.
Chefs, TV personalities, creatives and The Mill’s very own Pat Joseph took to the stage to celebrate the vast creative hub that is Soho.
Speakers included Skye Gyngell, Angela Hartnett and Thomasina Miers, three of the UK’s greatest female chefs, who discussed the complexity of balancing creativity, profitability and responsibility in the kitchen in 'Food. Ethics. Art'. Advertising execs Lindsey Clay, Elspeth Lynn, Caroline Pay and Caitlin Ryan shared how they got to the top and what it takes to stay there in 'Getting There and Staying There', and director/writer/musician Mike Figgis shed light on the process of creating art ‘in conversation with’ visual artist Jake Chapman
Pat Joseph, CCO of The Mill, teamed up with Gorgeous’ Chris Palmer and Colour TV’s Jay Pond-Jones to talk about the relentless pursuit of creativity in ‘Forever Young: Keeping Creative’, wherein the industry veterans discussed how they keep the creativity flowing after years of being in the industry, still managing to produce fresh ideas.
The Mill also hosted an Open House wherein businesses and students were able to learn about The Mill’s host of creative capabilities and take a behind the scenes look at some of our latest and greatest work, before enjoying the sun on The Loft terrace, where the Soho Create closing party drinks took place on Thursday evening.
