Following on from the success of last year's event, this month the Art Directors Club of Europe (ADC*E) will be running the second Creative Express, a project created to provide training and promotion of young creatives in Europe.
Taking place at the ADC Netherlands headquarters on 14 March, the event will see young creatives working in teams under the guidance of senior creatives from the ADC*E board.
They have to be under the age of 28, have at least two years of professional experience and have been chosen by the different member countries of the ADCE. In total, 12 candidates from Austria, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and United Kingdom will be taking part.
The young creatives will also join a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Art Directors Club of Europe, held three times a year in different European cities.
The event has a double objective: on one hand, learning the concerns of young professionals, and on the other, giving them the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals.
