The cobblestones of Dublin’s Smithfield heard the ding dong of ICAD Bells on Thursday June 9th. ICAD’s Manifesto two day Creative Conference culminated in a packed out Awards 2022 Night on Thursday June 9th at The Complex Smithfield. Ireland's creative community celebrated together in what was an old banana ripening warehouse that is now an eclectic space.
ICAD sends massive thanks to Rondell Wescott, Sarah Boris, Sandra Bold, Cian Tormey, Slava Denys and Philip King for their thought provoking and evocative talks. Also to the panellists and contributors that debated the challenges that face Ireland’s creative industry under three key themes: Independence, Equality and Creativity
These words from Nathan Reilly ICAD’s new President say it all: ”ICAD is much more than just an awards programme or event. We are a community of Ireland's best and brightest visual communicators. Beyond our professional responsibilities to hit deadlines and targets, we have a collective opportunity to learn from each other, to inspire one another and a responsibility to foster the emerging generation of creative talent in Ireland. This is what we seek to promote, support and celebrate and this is what underpinned our vision for Manifesto. I want to thank everyone who contributed and worked tirelessly to make our first ever festival the beautiful experience it was. I also offer my congratulations to all our ICAD 2022 winners - you represent the best in Irish creativity. Creative advertising, design and film reflects and influences our society in major ways and this deserves recognition. Well done."
