WePresent: Stuff They Don’t Tell You: How To Make a Difference


Oct 18th 2022
17:00 – 19:00


Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park
Creator's Lab

Creatives are known for their great ideas—but it can be challenging to turn them into something more. Unpaid invoices. Tough clients. Networking. It’s a lot to figure out and quickly drains the creative psyche—especially when all these practical tidbits are shrouded in mystery.

Welcome to Berlin where WePresent is hosting their last (but not least) Stuff They Don’t Tell You 2022 event.

We’ll discuss what it means to use your skills, platform, or voice to defy the status quo, using art as a force for good. The way we challenge ourselves—and the world—through creativity can overturn unfair policies, reduce inequality, and build communities across the globe under common causes.
