As the Marcus Graham Project’s 13th iCR8 Summer Bootcamp comes to an end, a time for recollection and celebration is called for to highlight the exhilarating journey that the Afternoon Agency has experienced. Where one chapter ends, another one unfolds as the Afternoon cohort prepares to emerge into the Advertising and Marketing Industry. What better opportunity to embrace such diverse and talented individuals in a field that desperately needs them, than with the Afternoon Agency’s Virtual Summit!

The summit, entitled #BeyondTheMoment is a virtual experience bridging the gap between early career creatives and the evolving marketing industry while at home.

Unprecedented times call for unprecedented creativity and this summit will focus on upward mobility, entrepreneurship, and creativity. Participants will leave this experience connected to other professionals with the tools to confidently thrive in the Advertising and Marketing industry during and post-COVID.

What makes our summit different?

We are fiercely committed to human connection by creating access for early career professionals in the middle of a global pandemic. The industry has had all morning to get it right but now it’s our time. Together, we represent Black, Asian, Latino, LGBTQ, biracial, first-generation, multilingual, and immigrant communities, and have launched our own agency at exactly the time when fresh voices are needed most.


AfterNoon Agency's Virtual Summit is set for August 20 - 21, 2020!
