ALL ABOUT THIS YEAR’S SCOUT CREATIVE TALKS
As millennials, we’re granted the privilege of today’s conveniences brought by the digital age: faster communication and easy access to information. We’re born into the global stage, and as we grow up the world, as we realize, isn’t as small as it seems. Staying forever young isn’t what we’re going for at Scout. But as time moves so fast, the worst thing that we want is an uncertain future. Being afraid of what lies ahead is not just a thing for us young ones, but the hopes of making it big weighs on us heavy. It’s natural to be afraid of what we don’t know, and knowing our places in the world is never an easy task. Good thing we’re not alone
This is where the Scout Creative Talks come in. We may not know where we’ll end up in life exactly down the road, but we do know ourselves, our passions, what excites us. With that, the Scout Creative Talks serves as a venue to inspire the youth of today to pursue their passion through dialogues with established artists and experts. Attendees will have a chance to have a dialogue with the best in the industry, as well as receive exclusive Scout merchandise.
The Scout Creative Talks is happening this October 15 from 9am to 6pm at the Power Mac Center Spotlight, Circuit Makati.
