Shaping the Future
The world is in a state of flux, yet solutions to our problems and issues can be found in creativity. The future need not be bleak. D&AD Festival 2019 will tackle this topic through the following 3 tracks:
Belief in political and economic institutions is at an all-time low, so the role that businesses, brands and people play in society, environment and culture has never been more important. This track will outline, discuss and debate how creativity is a key tool in creating positive change.
How can you come up with a great idea? How does that idea become reality? The festival is about creative excellence and craft is the basis for this. Find out how great work is created as our speakers share their experiences, challenges, and how to turn a 'lightbulb moment' into reality.
Great work is done when people come together. Brilliant stories shape communities and build trust. Creativity helps us connect and makes us human. This track will discuss and identify ways in which we connect and collaborate to overcome challenges we face at work and in the world.
With over 100 speakers across four stages, D&AD Festival runs over three days with events from morning to evening at The Old Truman Brewery and around Shoreditch, London. The Festival includes an exhibition of the world’s best advertising and design, showcases from new talent and training sessions. Simultaneously, local studios and agencies will open their doors for talks, tours and workshops.
