R/GA (a full-service interactive, digital advertising agency) recently opened a San Francisco office. They already have offices across the globe in NYC, London, Singapore, Chicago, and São Paulo... and to kick off the new-ish office and the coming of summer, they've begun the Creative Connect Spring Series which "is about reaching out to San Francisco creatives across all disciplines to share their work and insights with the local creative community. Creative Connect is about getting an architect and a multi-media artist, a curator and a chef, a dancer and a street artist in the same room to see what happens".
R/GA is a multi-disciplinary agency that understands the benefit of cross-breeding creatives. The Creative Connect spring lecture series is open to the public and intended to provide space for San Francisco creative professionals to speak, perform or display groundbreaking work and ideas. Our hope is to inspire great work in our office and the greater community.
Their first speaker, Japanese calligrapher Aoi Yamaguchi, kicks it all off this Friday with a live large-scale calligraphy performance at 4:30. Wine and cheese will be served and to RSVP, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This guy, John Trippe, will be giving some sort of hour long presentation on Friday, June 10th at 4:30. Beer shall be provided and it should be... well, hopefully interesting. More of a performance than talk most likely. We'll see.
