[TALK] What is sustainable advertising and why is it essential for tomorrow’s generations?

We live today in a tipping point period, preoccupations around climate change have never been so present and so validated as in the last months.

[WORKSHOP] Speak now or forever hold your Brand

When it comes to taking risks, presenting, selling and executing bold ideas, we find it easier with pro-bono or social campaigns - but when it comes to the daily routine of our briefs, work plans and marketing tasks, we are usually choosing the safe and conservative path, our instinct is not to disturb or upset our clients or our consumers. During this workshop, we will inspire you to understand why this is the era to take risks, do bold creative work that touches people, and take a stand on how choosing this path will bring our clients and brands a long term relationship and make consumers choose the bold brand, the one who dares to take a stand and not the one that hold it tongue.

[TALK] Turning Shit into Gold

The world is full of problems. And the world of creativity is constantly threatened and undermined by a huge amount of constraints: social censorship, cultural isolation, regional conflicts, gender discrimination, inequality, or money cuts and over-rational thinking. This presentation is an exploration of the many ways to make creativity blossom even, and especially, under constraint.

[TALK] Raw or Die

Boogie is a real master of ghetto photography, tireless hunter of the cities and human souls. He has a fast hand and a good eye. Camera is his weapon and he is a number one “shooter” in Belgrade, and also in Brooklyn. He is all about rawness and goes straight to the end in the same direction that advertising is supposedly going nowadays. During this talk Jasmina and Boogie will among other things speak about advertising – is it really going towards rawness? And how much rawness is in advertising today?
