The Creative Express is a programme organized by the ADCE designed to provide professional training and promote young European creatives.

It brings together the continent’s best young art directors, copywriters and designers, to draw inspiration and new methods of learning from their international peers. Hailing from the full breadth of Europe, the attendees work together to tackle a real-world business challenge in a classroom like no other.

The 11th Creative Express

The newest edition of the Creative Express gathered the best young creatives from around Europe during a 3-day bootcamp from September 29th to October 1st 2022, in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, as part of their 700th anniversary celebration that will be taking place in 2023.

In collaboration with the school of advertising and creativity The Atomic Garden Vilnius, the ADCE and the Lithuanian Design Association, Vilnius city council invited young creatives and advertising professionals from all over Europe to team up in an ad-hoc agency, crack the brief, and co-create jaw-dropping ideas to spread the word about young Vilnius throughout all Europe.
