Fake News from the Future

Fake News from the Future

Thu, 23 May 19

Does journalism have a future? Or is the whole business built on a revenue model destined to fail? Are we responsible for the collapse of an industry?

Who better to ask these questions to than a news addict pur sang. Jeroen Wils isn’t only the founder of Bepublic, a PR-agency with journalism tied to its very DNA-chain. He is also a man with over 25 years of experience working in journalism. He even served as VTM’s editor in chief for almost seven years.

Come get your brain tickled at this inspiring event!

You're the entertainment

Thu, 20 Jun 19

Is the future of entertainment filled with participation? Or are we destined to become nothing more than a bunch of mindless zombies glued to our digital screens?

No organisation better to ask these question to than playField. playField is a young art collective that explores the boundaries between entertainment and spectators. Their interactive installations invite the audience to participate in a shared experience that triggers all the senses.

Get out of your seat and speak up June 20th!

Culture Recap

6 predictions for the future, by Jeroen Wils.

It’s no secret that journalists are having a rough time. The old revenue models aren't bringing in the big bucks anymore. Journalists get less time to write more. And their readers have grown to become news outlets themselves. Outlets that send out stories 24/7. What will the future of journalism even look like?

A no bullshit campaign.

Advertising is most effective when it's simple, fun and hella creative. Check out these protein bar ads.

Who says no to fun content?

Light-hearted, silly, fun and weirdly lovable. An ad that escapes our real-world troubles and builds a place in which killing your goldfish is something to smile about. Kinda.

The First Instagram TV ad.

Mercedes-Benz launched the first ever Instagram TV Spot, honouring Bertha Benz, wife of Karl Benz.

A moment of dyslexia.

These ads use facial-detection technology to give passers-by a taste of what it is like to be dyslexic. The longer people look at the screens, the more jumbled the words and letters become.



Crashed Cases.

Volkswagen has made phone cases from crashed cars. The cases serve as a stark reminder that texting and driving leads to accidents, even deaths.

Mud Soldier.

Visit Flanders has put a Mud Soldier in London. It’s the perfect way to commemorate a battle that we may never forget. A battle fought on the very grounds we walk on every day.

Billboards beyond Borders.

Doctors without Borders transformed Google Maps into the ultimate censorship-free zone. Billboards beyond Borders is a campaign no dictator or authoritarian regime can ignore.

International Women's Day

For quite some time now, our team has been in the midst of a lively discussion on whether or not we should do something on this glorious but cold, winter’s day. Whether or not we should try and get some attention amid the endless stream of 50% discount hair removal gels and 1 + 1 anti-ageing cream brands, that scream down the throats of every single woman on the planet Earth.
