NICE Magazine – Issue 9

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The latest NICE Magazine is out and available for download!  We know that it has been a while in the making, but with a new editor at the helm, we’re excited to be back on track and working hard to create the best possible magazines for you to enjoy.

The theme of our 9th issue is “Collaboration”. In it we’ve explored exceptional creative work that spans a wide and diverse range of media. In the spirit of collaboration, we got all the members of the Nicework team involved. From submitting visual features, to drawing exquisite corpses, to submitting songs for a mix-mash mixtape (look out for the broadcast happening right here on Nicework Ramble soon), everyone added their bit. We think it’s made for an exciting magazine.

Here’s the great local and international content you can expect to see in this issue on NICE:

On the local front we have an in-depth feature on Johannesburg wunderkinder team Jana+Koos, as well as a showcase of the new Pretoria creative hub Die Moederskip. We then hear from post-everything band The Brother Moves On, and learn how Michel Gondry’s Home Movie Factory was brought to life in Joburg. We also shine the spotlight on a great analogue community project called  Film Swap happening in Cape Town, as well as team up with Invisible Cities Pirate Radio to collaborate on our very own mixtape!

From further afield, we are very pleased to be able to share the story of talented Australian brothers, Tom and James, in an insightful interview. Then ALSO, the creators of the book everyone’s going “ooh aah” about The Where, the Why, and the How share some thoughts on collaboration. We also feature a global photographic project called The Disposable Memory Project, and hear from two creative ladies who’ve teamed up for a  collaborative ceramic exhibition called Moo Moo Woof Woof.

We sincerely hope you enjoy!
