RIBA announces Guerrilla Tactics creative directors

The Royal Institute of British Architects is pleased to announce that Esther Everett and Eleanor Fawcett, who head the Design and Physical Regeneration team at the London Legacy Development Corporation, have been appointed Creative Directors of the 2015 RIBA conference, Guerrilla Tactics.

As Creative Directors, Esther and Eleanor will develop the 2015 theme and deliver a curated programme for the two-day event. They will work closely with RIBA small practitioners Chris Bryant of Alma-nac, Rachael Davidson of HUT Architecture, Jake Edgley of Edgley Design, Barbara Kaucky of Erect Architecture, Cassion Castle of Cassion Castle Architects, Marco Ortiz of Emergent Design Studios, and Amy Frearson, Deputy Editor at Dezeen.

Chris Bryant, Chair of the RIBA Small Practice Group, said:

“We are delighted to have Esther and Eleanor on board. They bring significant experience from the client’s perspective and have a track record for supporting innovation and creativity.”

Esther Everett, Head of Physical Regeneration and Design at the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), said:

“I am honoured to be appointed joint Creative Director of Guerrilla Tactics 2015. We will explore the client’s perspective, from getting a commission through to gaining recognition and with all the hurdles in between. The day will be a forum for exchange, offering strategies from behind the scenes that will help build successful small practices.”

The Guerrilla Tactics conference has grown rapidly since it was established in 2004 and is now one of the largest events for RIBA members. The informative two-day programme, designed to develop business and management skills, has become a must-attend event in the annual calendar of small practitioners.

The Guerrilla Tactics conference programme will be launched in September 2015.
