A Creative Disruption festival from The Drum

To watch this session please click the register button below

Human connectivity amidst crisis is nothing new. People have always come up with incredibly imaginative ways to find connections, and the same is happening now even when we’re not in the same physical space together. But how exactly are creatives using their creative powers to affect positive change? What human stories are they telling, and visual cues are they using to showcase stories of adjustment and resilience?

Join The Drum, Shutterstock and the creative community to get some answers.

Themes to be discussed: - Over time, the impact of the crisis around us may be so sweeping that it alters human rituals and behaviors that have evolved over millennia. How are we preparing ourselves? - How are the current constraints shaping our sense of the world? - How to explain to your workforce how constraints are good for innovation. After all, the industry has been used to working with an abundance of resources (i.e. there are new rules and boundaries now) - Setting new guidelines on how small cross-functional work teams should interact - What kind of collaborations are we seeing? - As we redefine our relationship with creativity and invention, and playing with the new and the unknown, what kinds of experiments are we seeing?
