Empowering Future Creatives – Pre-MAX Unconference

Adobe is deeply committed to making creativity a priority in education. We take an active role in this movement in part because our research shows that creativity is vital for student success in the job market of today and tomorrow. But also because we hear from our customers – the world’s leading creatives – that schools are not doing enough to prepare graduates to think creatively, to innovate, and to think outside the box. We feel it is time for the creative industry to come together with leaders in the education space to address this issue.

The Adobe Education team is pleased to host a gathering to do just that! We’re welcoming students, teachers and professional creatives to join us at an unconference in Los Angeles, CA on October 5th, just before the start of our annual Adobe MAX event. During the unconference, participants will share their strategies for what’s working, and work together to come up with innovative solutions to help bridge the gap between a creative education and a creative career.

The event is free, and you don’t have to be a MAX attendee to participate. Anyone who cares about the current state and future potential of our shared education systems around the world is welcome. You don’t need to be an expert or have a pre-conceived idea about what you’d like to talk about. You just need to bring a passion for preparing the next generation of creatives and impacting classrooms and schools.
