AgendaAll the relevant social advertising and marketing seminars, workshops, awards and events.
The exhibition Ads for People focuses on how public service announcements and non-profit campaigns have benefitted dramatically from the Internet’s combination of flexibility and affordability. “Around the world, a fresh model of advertising has emerged allowing additional voices to join the conversations that both develop and reflect our cultural values,” says the exhibition’s curator, Lisa Deanne Smith.
Campaigns featured in Ads for People include: Your Man Reminder, an app developed by Toronto’s John St. agency to encourage breast cancer awareness; The Girl Epidemic, a YouTube campaign by international agency StrawberryFrog to raise awareness and funds to educate underprivileged girls in India; and the Rivers of Light/ Operación Ríos de Luz program developed by Lowe-SSP3 in Bogota as part of a strategy to diminish guerrilla warfare. Ads for People combines traditional media with recent platforms (phone apps; social media) to draw attention to these new voices, their concerns and advertising methods.

The Design Ignites Change Social Impact Workshop focuses on how to conceive, develop, fund and execute projects for social change. It will be led by Mark Randall, founder of Worldstudio and Shana Dressler, founder of Social Innovators Collective in collaboration with Domaine de Boisbuchet.
Many design, communication and architecture professionals have turned their efforts towards non-client based work that has the potential for positive social impact. The creative professions have traditionally been a service industry where a client drives the inception and development of a project. However, in this week-long workshop individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit who want to break from this traditional mold to catalyze their own powerful initiatives for social change will learn how to transfer their skills from working in service of their clients to working as entrepreneurs.
The program will also lay down the groundwork for those who are ready for a larger commitment on how to found a social enterprise. At the end of the workshop each participant will leave with a solid understanding of the steps and resources necessary to implement projects and build businesses in a sustainable way.
The workshop has been designed for creative professionals and social entrepreneurs as well as advanced college students who are over 21 and have completed their junior year at college or university.Date 16 Jun 2013 - 22 Jun 2013
