How do creative pipelines recover from COVID-19?

Will slow recovery and limited budgets stifle creativity in representation of diversity in advertising?

Can creatives make this crisis open new platforms and channels in the online world for creative work in advertising?

Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, many advertising channels and brands were innovating with reflective representation in images and campaigns.

How does the spotlight on equality, awareness of inequality and Black Lives Matter influence commissioning and brand campaigns in future?

The UK hosts the leading creative cluster in creative advertising and reflective representation in advertising encouraged by organisations like Channel 4.

From content creation through to campaign delivery, every single function in the creative process has an impact on how communities see each other and see themselves.

Across the course of the programme our speakers will discuss and debate challenges, successes and setbacks looking to present practical steps to which the entire media industry can commit to promote and champion inclusion.

Supporting Creatives in Advertising

In response to the devastating impact COVID has had on the creative industries in advertising and the extensive freelance and creative companies that have lost work, this is a FREE invitation from Channel 4 and Getty Images to creative and freelance staff to register for this online content, to contribute and help understand how the industry as a whole is responding as we come out of lockdown into a likely austere and frugal future.

How do you fit into and prosper in a more diverse and representative industry?

The event will be live streamed and the content curated into a Reflective Representation in Advertising boxset, for discussion across the industry.
