Cannes Lions: shots Selections for Monday
Insights from will.i.am and NASA, plus your first party of Cannes Lions 2017.
After two days of Health Lions, the rest of the Lions categories roar into action today (count it: that's Lion/roar pun 1 out of the 934,657 you will read this week). Here's the talks and events shots have got their eyes on for Monday.
What: What NASA and Space Exploration Can Teach Us about Creativity
Where: 12:00 - 12:45, The Forum
Why: One small step for Cannes, one giant leap for Cannes-kind as NASA take to the stage to make us all feel a little inadequate and hopefully show us how 'brands can tap into open creative abundance to solve their own challenges.'
What: A Closer Look at Entrepreneurship: Founder Insights from will.i.am, Brit Morin, and Katrina Lake
Where: 15:00 - 15:45, Inspiration Stage
Why: Cannes Lions doesn't really start until you've seen your first celebrity, so why not kick off with tech entrepreneur, Black Eyed Peas rapper and obsessive wearer-of-sunglasses will.i.am talking 'how you turn that trend into the next big thing in an overcrowded market'.
What: Cannes Lions Opening Gala
Where: 21:00 - 00:00, Carlton Beach
Why: Because where else are you going to see all of Adland together in one place (except for the shots beach party, obvs)? Plus, it's the only big party of Cannes where no-one has a raging hangover from the night before...
