Karmarama continue global Creative Exchange programme for second year

Karmarama has kicked off global Creative Exchange, its transfer programme that gives employees from Accenture Interactive agencies around the world the chance to job-swap for a month.

 

Now in its second year, the Creative Exchange was started with the goal to build a global creativecommunity within the Accenture Interactive family of agencies.

 

Nik Studzinski, chief creative officer at Karmarama, who initiated the programme, said: “Understanding and appreciating new and different working cultures helps young creatives find the empathy they need to create great work. The experiences gained from the exchange can be brought back to their work at the end of the programme and spread through their home agencies too. Everyone Wins.”

 

This year, the programme has been opened up to employees from both creative and planning departments, of Karmarama (UK) and The Monkeys (Australia).

 

The programme runs for four weeks from 10th September and selected teams will take part in training; attend local conferences and events; take part in workshops to exchange ideas about creative culture and opportunities with the host agency; and participate in cultural and social activities. The teams will also be documenting their experiences on the Instagram account @kangarama
