Room to Talk: Black Lives Matter Bonus Bonus Edition
WdKa2. Students of the prestigious Advertising & Beyond department of the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam expressed their strong doubts about an internship or career at advertising agencies. They experience a disconnect and wonder if agencies are the best place to do creative, relevant and purposeful work. They have other plans, especially after the murder of George Floyd on May 25 2020, and they do not involve us as an Industry. This episode was also taped at the KINO in Rotterdam and involved an open mic for the audience which led to a rightful break in by students who felt the convo was not being brought to the level it should. That's on me, I forgot the basic of this struggle, keep talking about it, keep educating, never relax into the norm, always be switched on. Give the mic to those who have not been heard enough, allow safespace for those fighting in the struggle every single day.
