Global creative calendar: May 2022

Published by

Two years ago, this forecast of upcoming events became irrelevant, almost overnight. Since then, we have adapted - and now, rejuvenation is on the rise. Comparatively, we may go less often, stay closer to home, and spend more time phoning it in … but new days are growing heavy with promise. Even in our reshuffled order, learning opportunities beckon, inviting us to build and fortify relationships, challenge ourselves, contribute, and put ourselves on the map. Better times are shaping-up in this month’s ultimate events.

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