ADCE European Creativity Festival

The ADCE European Creativity Festival is an immersive annual event bringing together creative professionals from around the continent for two days of inspirational talks, hands-on workshops, and plenty of networking opportunities.

5th ADCE Festival: 'Rewiring the Creative Machine'

In a world that has increasingly become digital and shifting towards automation, what is the real impact of that evolution on creativity when, in essence, the creative process is messy and unpredictable? How do we think up the best ideas and develop them through new forms of creative collaboration including working together with machines?

“The creative process is messy”, says Festival curator Kris Hoet (Chief Innovation Officer at Happiness and FCB Global) about this year’s topic. “So, how do we explore flow and ways of working together within the complexity driven by technology instead of trying to automate it?”

What’s the story behind?

Each edition of the ADCE Festival strives to present innovative ideas and models that challenge the way we see creativity and inspire shifts in perceptions that will help reshape the future of the industry.

As a curated event, participants are exposed to meaningful talks revolving around a major topic of specific relevance to the fields of design and advertising.  Most of the speakers go on to work hand-in-hand with the participants in one of the programmed workshops covering industry trends, new technologies and powerful working models.

All in all, attendees walk away with new ideas that can make a real impact on their work.
