Concept & Theme (illustrated by Concept Cloud)From these key brand associations, we derived our key message as shown on the screen - we wanted to drive home the message that everyone and anyone can be creative; and that Singapore 2010 is the perfect opportunity/reason for youths to do so NOW. The key message helped shape the identity of the CAN! Arts as a festival which celebrates the universality of creativity. Above and beyond that, the CAN! Arts festival is more than just a celebration of creativity, but also a platform to get youths to exercise their creativity in celebration of Singapore 2010.
From the key message, the campaign tagline was derived. The direct and active use of words creates a sense of immediacy and empowerment in being creativeThe reason behind the tagline’s phrasing/structure is also that it….. Engages the creative spirit Creates a sense of empowerment Reflects the campaign message by provoking the TA to interpret it in their own creative way.
Campaign is CAN! Pledge
CAN! Pledge Ambassadors We also scouted for young opinion leaders to represent the campaign. We consider these ambassadors a key component of our campaign identity because unlike core graphics and messaging and concepts, they are real living beings that go beyond static representations of what our campaign is about.The criteria to be a campaign ambassador therefore also reflects the concepts of youthfulness, energy and creativity that were mentioned before. XXX will explain more about how we engaged with these ambassadors and how they in turn interacted with our TA in communicating what our campaign is about.
Before we go into the various execution of our campaign proper, we would like to highlight the strategic partnerships that were built with various organizations throughout the campaign. Collaborations with our partners varies from monetary and product sponsorships with organizations such as Swatch and the Mayor’s Imagine Fund, to deeper community engagement with organizations such as the Mongolian Embassy and RI whom we worked together with for our event’s programming.Some of our partnership may fall into multiple categories; but essentially, the rationale behind building these alliances is to value-add to each other’s goals….especially when the CAN! festivals are coming to a close (I.e. we wish to create a deeper/more lasting impact with our campaign by contributing to the initiatives of these like-minded organizations).
Conclusion – what is the main value/contribution of our work to the entire CAN ! festival and YOG. What aspirations you want to bring into youth’s lives.Provide youthful perspective to CAN! festivitiesProvide a concept that was timely (and relevant (subject matter) to youths to help build overall brand equity of S2010Increased YOG’s pool of captive audience in terms of connected youthsBrought back the CAN! festivities to its true purpose = which is to connect personally with youthsTied in the last CAN festival with the actual games in aug 2010
