Global creative calendar: August 2019

Published by

Of more than 40 momentous events set to play out in the weeks ahead, many are already underway or will commence with August's first dawn. A large number are also new to this publication.

Among them are some of the world's most famous cultural and creative industry gatherings, set to welcome attendees to regional capitals around the planet, as well as countless conferences where innovation and mastery will soar to new heights. 

During this spectacular time of year, so many festivities invite us to adventure outdoors, which bodes especially well for meaningful connections. According to Shakespeare, "One touch of nature makes the whole world kin."
