Global creative calendar: August 2022

Published by

Among dozens of momentous events set to play out in the weeks ahead, many are already underway, or will commence with the dawn of August. The list includes some of the world’s most famous cultural and creative industry gatherings set to welcome attendees virtually and/or in person, and others where innovation and mastery will reach for the stars.

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

This monthly feature story is put together by The Darnell Works Agency, the go-to PR firm for creative agencies, brands, and entertainment ventures.
