Welcome to “Yes! And...” an online festival by Berghs School of Communication.
We built the festival Yes! And… from the ground up to explore excellent student work, discuss interesting trends in communication, and to hang out and enjoy a bunch of entertainment. All together online.
Yes! And… WHY?
Thanks to a bat and a pangolin, there’s a lot of NO going on at the moment. NO, stay at home. NO, don’t visit your friends. NO, don’t travel. We understand why, and we’re pretty responsible. But it’s still no, no, no. We think it’s time to say YES to more things.
YES to being open to new ways of working, and living, and staying close to each other, even from a physical distance. YES to making the most of the world as it is. But better than just YES is to say Yes! And…
Because when you do that, you build momentum, you get better and more unexpected ideas. More people feel encouraged to contribute. And you get more perspectives, a more positive vibe, and better ideas to work with. Ideas that keep flowing. It’s a perfect metaphor for what we stand for at Berghs.
Yes! And… a hub for everything.
We’re building a custom site where all parts of the festival come together. There you will find killer work by our graduating students, see exciting talks and debates, or why not some live entertainment?
Yes! And… see you there!
So join us online on the 26 and 27 of May! In the meanwhile, sign up for free to get updates and access to the festival once it starts. Yes, and we promise you’ll make some unexpected connections, and have some unpredictable fun, all from the comfort of your own home.
Enjoy performances by artists including Simon Superti, Mapei and Albin Lee Meldau. Listen to interesting discussions and talks with Katarina Graffman, Charbel Gabro and more. See the full festival lineup at yesandfestival.com
