The U Symposium 2016: Magazines Independent

— Celebrating the founders, editors, creatives and lovers of independent magazines.

Back for a second edition, The U Symposium 2016: Magazines Independent was a follow up to its sold-out run in 2015, and saw the editors, founders and creatives behind magazines like Cereal, Apartamento and Popeye gather for a weekend of sharing and exchange.

Led once again by Hjgher in the event’s branding, strategic and marketing efforts, the return of The U Symposium continued the conversation surrounding independent publishing, and how the evolution of print has influenced both readers and magazine makers. Complementary events such as a masterclass by MagCulture’s Jeremy Leslie, a reading club by Seb Emina of The Happy Reader and a panel discussion involving the founders of Wrap Magazine were also held to give participants more in-depth discussion into the inner workings of publishing today.
