Kevin Swanepoel, President of The One Club, explained, “Creative Week began when we saw that the 4,000-5,000 creative professionals that we were bringing to New York each year for the One Show Festival, presented an excellent opportunity for New York’s creative organisations to attract an enthusiastic and influential new audience to their events.”

Currently, scheduled Creative Week events include ‘Shoot’ magazine’s Directors Symposium and 8th Annual New Directors Showcase Event, The New York Photo Festival, and a performance by noted composer Pauline Oliveros. A retrospective exhibit will showcase advertising agency Doner and the innovative TV advertising campaigns and slogans that helped make them famous.
