Creative Circle Conference 2022 – Go Beyond | Celebrate local talent who went beyond to make it big globally

The post-Covid era has brought many transformations to our world, touching even us here in the Little Red Dot we call home. Diversity, inclusiveness, and innovation have reset the bar and made us think.

How do we move forward in a transitioning world and consider our role as creatives who bring forth the new to our audiences? 

These thoughts on pivoting and adapting to change lead us to our theme, “Go Beyond” – A celebration of local talent who have made a big impact on the global scene. 

This year’s festival is a call to action to encourage young creatives to take the leap and venture beyond our shores. Lean into our strengths that shape our uniquely Singaporean perspectives, not just in world events but our work as creatives.
