D&AD Festival is a three-day creative spectacular celebrating the world’s best in craft, creativity and culture, hosted at The Old Truman Brewery, London on 21, 22 and 23 May 2019.
The festival runs alongside our world renowned awards programme. There will be three days of keynotes, fireside chats, workshops and masterclasses from the world of advertising, art, design, fashion, film, and much more.
The theme of this year's Festival is Shaping the Future. Throughout the three days, leaders in creativity will share their thoughts and insights on the future across three key tracks. Read more here.
Integrated into the Festival’s main schedule, we designed a two-day leadership course that will provide guidance for senior creatives.
