Cannes Can: Diversity Collective


Join the Cannes Can: Diversity Collective (CC:DC) at Inkwell Beach, as the organization celebrates five years of providing young people of color and underrepresented communities with access and opportunity to attend and participate in major events such as the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Our activation focuses on the intersections of DE&I, innovation and creativity. This year's Inkwell Beach theme is "Expect the Unexpected: Moving DE&I from WOE is me to WOW is me."

Programming includes:

  • Juneteenth Celebration - Bridging the Gap of Information Dissemination
  • Opening night party (featuring musical guest Chloe Bailey) and the annual AYA Inclusion Awards
  • "Day of Disruption" (featuring four-time New York Times bestselling author, speaker and entrepreneur Luvvie Ajayi Jones) where we explore forward-focused ways to implement revolutionary change in the creative industry 
  • The "Power of Partnerships" powered by Proctor & Gamble
  • Live feeds for the "Daily Cultural Updates" featuring the 2023 cohort of CC:DC ambassadors
